Fixing Frederick's Felines

If you answered YES to any of these questions, please consider participating in Fixing Frederick's Felines, the AWLFC's Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) program.

TNR consists of trapping, sterilizing, vaccinating, and returning cats to their own environment. It is the only humane way to manager feral and free-roaming cat populations. Since our program began in 2001, we have helped hundreds of Frederick property owners, farmers, and homeowners manage feral and free-roaming cats. We rely on our participating veterinarians who give us access to reduced rates for feline sterilization and vaccination; we are able to pass on these discounts to property owners who participate in our TNR program.

Frederick County Cat and Dog Rescue Here are the basics of our program:

  1. Return the FFF agreement to AWLFC (address on the form) with payment of $65 per cat, the average cost for a spay or neuter, rabies and distemper vaccine.
  2. Once we receive your agreement and down payment, an AWLFC representative will contact you to schedule a site visit. He or she will train you in setting the humane traps or will handle the trapping for you, if you prefer. The AWLFC representative will also work with you to schedule trapping and veterinary appointments. We work with veterinary clinics throughout the county and will do our best to accommodate you in terms of geographic proximity of the vet to your home or trap site and cost considerations.
  3. You are responsible for transporting cats to and from the veterinarian and for providing a safe location for them to recover for at least 24 hours post-surgery (cats remain in the trap). If you authorize any additional services at the time you drop off the cat at the veterinarian, you will be responsible for these charges and must pay the vet directly. (eg. Pre-operative blood work, pain meds, tests). You will also be responsible for any additional charges if the cat is determined by the vet to be pregnant, lactating, or in heat. Refer to the FFF agreement for average fees.
  4. After the cat is recovered, you are responsible for releasing it back into its colony or home environment.
