All feral cats must be brought in for surgery in a feral
cat trap like this one:
We have these traps available for rent or purchase at the shelter. If you need help trapping feral cats please email us
. There are several wonderful volunteer groups that can help you get started.
Palm Beach County requires that feral cat colonies be registered with the Animal Care and Control Division - contact 561-233-1200 for more information.
Feral cat colony managers must assure that cats are fed regularly throughout the year. All cats must be sterilized and every attempt should be made to remove kittens less than eight weeks of age for domestication and placement.
Sick or injured animals must be removed immediately for care or humane euthanasia to prevent suffering.
Ear crops of the left ear are required along with microchips (EAID) and three years rabies vaccination.
Effective July 2012, all feral cats will receive an ID tattoo.
The colony caretaker must maintain proof of sterilization, vaccination and microchip for all cats in their care. If you have questions please call the surgery helpline at:
