TNR - Trap, Neuter, Return and No Kill Advocacy

------------------- 

 
Our 501(c)3 organization
Island Cat Feral Rescue, Inc. 
 
was founded to further the advancement of animal welfare by preventing cruelty to animals - by serving as a resource on humane and effective management of feral cat colony populations.
Our Directors and volunteers provide leadership from a diverse section of the community which includes Veterinarians, Adoption Specialists, Vet Techs, Foster Families, along with individuals that are not animal health professionals. Their love and compassion for all cats - feral, stray or domestic brings them together in a mutual goal of animal protection and advocacy.

---------------------- 

We do not have a shelter to take in feral, stray or abandoned animals - we can only refer you to local groups that have adoption programs - keeping in mind that true ferals cannot be adopted out as they are unsocialized and cannot be handled. Our primary purpose is Trap, Neuter, Return of Feral Cats to prevent overpopulation.

Island Cat Feral Rescue, Inc. located in St Augustine, Florida is a No-Kill animal rescue and resource organization dedicated to reducing the number of stray and feral cats facing euthanasia in shelters.

After receiving several reports of a cat in distress with its head stuck in an old, rusty can, The animal was located by ICFR staff. It apparently had come accross the can while traveling thru deep, low brush - most likely after dark. After multiple attempts at trying to trap trap the feral cat in the dark for 8 days - hope was almost lost. The animal was unable to drink or eat in it's situation and rescuers feared for the worse after over a week went by with efforts to trap it and get it medical care....

ICFR aims to increase public awareness  by educating the community of St Johns County on the necessity and benefits of community subsidization of sterilization for cat owners who are unable to afford those costs. Many feral cat colony caretakers who cannot afford the costs of multiple sterilization surgeries pay out of pocket.

                                     -------------------------

ICFR's web site is focused on information related to effective TNR efforts on the local and national level. We also list links to national resources recoginzed for best practices for the humane care of stray and feral cats. These include Alley Cat Allies and The Humane Society of the United States. We welcome county and city officlials to participate in our efforts and believe that there is a movement for humane change in the way our community addresses the stray and feral cat populations. We have seen this to our north in Duval County and to our south in Flagler and Volusia.
