The Pet Connection has taken in multiple colonies of altered feral cats throughout the years. Jason Huff and a few volunteers have spent their extra time building a little village for the feral cats we have taken in. The ferals and indoor/outdoor cats - including Jerry, Faith, Big Boy - have moved into this little village and absolutely love their new home. It provides them with shelter, fun enrichment, and it’s a cute area for visitors to explore!

PRCKC offers TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) services for free roaming cats.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a program through which free-roaming feral cats (community cats) are
humanely trapped, transported to a veterinarian where they are sterilized, rabies vaccinated, left ear-tipped
and returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. The ear-tipping of a cat is the universal sign
of an altered community cat. This is the most humane, effective, and financially sustainable strategy for
controlling free-roaming cat populations and the only proven humane and effective method to manage
community cat colonies.
Once TNR is in place, the cats will no longer reproduce; the population will stabilize and eventually decline.
TNR programs stop reproduction and therefore mating behaviors such as fighting, roaming, spraying,
yowling or fighting stops. This helps the cats become better neighbors to everyone. The cats are rabies
vaccinated and are less susceptible to infectious diseases. This will help improve the overall health of the
cats. This is a win, win for us all. For more information on TNR please contact us

Are you needing to rehome your pet? The Pet Connection does not have an intake program with space readily available to take in surrendered animals, but we are more than happy to assist in rehome! The Pet Connection assists in rehoming family pets by promoting them online, assisting in training/rehab, sorting through applications, as well as scheduling meet and greets and assisting with the adoption itself. Rehome Qualifications:
We do not know how long the rehome process will take, so if you are needing the animal placed quickly please check with local rescues or contact us for other suggestions.
The pet must be up to date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered prior to rehome.
Your pet must come to our training classes and you have to do the homework. We must see the animal and assess them before moving forward.
