Traps & Colony Permits


We offer free loan of our traps once you have completed our TNR Workshop. Loans are for 2 weeks and require a $65 deposit per trap, refunded upon return. Checks for deposit can be made out to SAFCC. We do not take credit cards. To be refunded the full deposit, traps must be cleaned prior to return with any cleaner except bleach (causes rust). Up to 3 traps can be checked out at a time, depending on our limited inventory. For large colony projects, speak with your Workshop Instructor or Trap Loan Volunteer.

Traps can also be rented at Animal Defense League and the Humane Society on Fredericksburg Rd.

If purchasing your own trap, we recommend Tru-Catch traps (models 30LTD Light Duty Deluxe or 36D Classic Deluxe with the rear release doors). They can be purchased from Heart of the Earth Marketing.


Cat Colony Permits

San Antonio Animal Care Services (SA ACS) are accepting applications for outdoor cat colony permits regardless of the number of cats you are caring for. This is a wonderful change in their protocols.
