Free TNR classes
Trap Neuter Return Class
SAFCC offers free TNR classes. These classes are available on-line. Learn how you can help outdoor community cats using the ONLY method that works! By attending one class, you will learn the basics about the TNR process; how to safely and humanely manage and reduce the outdoor cat population numbers; low-cost spay/neuter options; free trap loan resources; after-surgery recovery protocols; and how to help solve cat nuisance problems.
On-line TNR Class:
The on-line class can be viewed on a computer (recommended) or a phone at any time. To receive instructions for watching the on-line class, please fill out this on-line form. After you submit the form, an email will be sent to you.
Trap Loan Program
SAFCC’s Trap Loan Program loans and sells traps only to those who have attended our training class.
Class attendees can call the Helpline (210-877-9067) and leave a message with their zip code. The Helpline volunteer will confirm their attendance and provide the trap loan volunteer’s (TLV) name and number for their area. A refundable deposit of $85 per trap is required. 3 traps per person is standard but the TLV can loan more depending on their inventory. The loan period is 2 weeks with one 2 week extension permitted. A Trap Loan Agreement is signed stating the traps will only be used for TNR or to trap a cat needing medical care.
Our spay/neuter clinics prefer the traps we use which are TruCatch traps. These are more humane than the silver ones with a slam-down plate that could injure or kill a kitten. Some clinics will only accept cats in Trucatch traps.
These are the traps we have for loan and purchase ($85). Dividers (shown with the regular trap) are also available to loan for a $25 deposit. As of June 5, 2023, our Big Boy is $115 due to increased shipping costs and is available for purchase.
This is our regular trap. Deposit is $85. Size: 30” x 9” x 11″
This is our Big Boy trap for larger cats. Deposit is $115. Size: 30” x 12” x 14″
