You have too many cats in your neighborhood? You can improve the lives of outdoor cats with Trap-Neuter-Return, the humane and effective approach for feral cats.  To successfully trap, neuter, vaccinate, eartip, and return feral cats, you need a plan. Learn how you can help reduce the number by humanely trapping and sterilizing.  It's the only method proven to work.


The City of Garland has implemented a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program and Garland Pawsibilities is here to mentor Garland residents by:

             *    Training citizens on caring for a feral cat colony.
             *    Giving tricks of the trade for trapping feral cats.
             *    Certifying residents as Colony Managers.
             *    Providing surgical/sterilization assistance when available.  

Please note that trapping assistance, pick-up of cats for surgery and/or transportation is generally not available.  
If you are interested in becoming a certified colony manager or volunteering with the TNR program, email us at for more details.



Garland Pawsibilities hosts monthly TNR clinics at the Pet Adoption Center located at 813 Main St. in downtown Garland. Become certified with Garland Pawsibilities and the City of Garland to qualify for financial sterilization assistance for the feral cat colony, when available.  Loaner traps ($50 returnable check deposit for each trap) are available to certified Colony Managers.
