Thank you for contacting the New Braunfels Community Cat Coalition TNVR Program, which provides free sterilizations and Rabies / FVRCP vaccinations for feral cats in Comal and Guadalupe County. YOUR participation aids in reducing the number of cats entering our city’s shelters and humane societies, while providing a happier and healthier life for local, community cats. In previous years, feral cats in New Braunfels delivered to the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area by Animal Control or private citizens were euthanized. With a new collaborative program, this community will now be able to sterilize and immunize feral cats and return them to the area where they have been living.
Traps can be rented from the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area (HSNBA) (Monday to Friday 10am-7pm and Saturday 10am-4pm) by leaving a deposit via check for $75. You can also purchase a live trap for around $50-$75 from a hardware or feed store. We recommend Tru-Catch Traps which can be purchased online here. All feral cats must arrive in a humane trap in order to safely sedate the cat before surgery. NBCCC and HSNBA staff are unable to trap or transport cats for you.
NBCCC recommends trapping the feral cat on a weekend. The cat should be dropped off on MONDAY at HSNBA. If a cat IS NOT FERAL, it will be introduced into the HSNBA to be adopted. NBCCC ONLY ACCEPTS FERAL CATS. Find out more about what constitutes as a “feral cat” in our FAQ Section of our website.
Make sure the cat is more than 3lbs or three months old. Do not trap nursing moms and underage kittens. Leave them in place until they are done nursing or they are old enough for surgery.
Drop your feral cat off at 3353 Morningside Drive in New Braunfels on MONDAY.
Cats must be picked up between Thursday after 5pm until Friday at 7pm. If the cat is not picked up by this time, it will be become property of NBCCC.
Hold the cat overnight to make sure there are no complications and release the following morning where you found it originally! The cat should look and behave as before, and the surgery site should be clean. Leave the cat in the trap and call us if you have any concerns.
