Lowell TNR relies on the time and energy of our dedicated volunteers to coordinate, manage and execute our TNR efforts. We are always open to new volunteers and no prior training or experience is required.
Once a month, volunteers span out across different sites around Lowell to trap the cats for spay/neuter surgery. The trapping is 100% humane and all equipment and supplies are provided. Although patience is often the key, no prior experience is required.
Once a month, drivers are needed to transport the cats to and from the holding location and the clinic location for surgery. When a large number of cats are involved, a UHaul is rented for this purpose.
As the cats recover from surgery, vounteers monitor their progress, provide food and water and clean the holding area. Ensuring a successful recovery is an integral part of the TNR process.
Donation Can Owners
Part of our funding is provided by a donation can program. Volunteers solicit local businesses to support a can which are collected as needed and brought to our monthly meetings.
Fundraisers are a great way to obtain finanical support while interacting with the local community. We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers to coordinate these efforts.
There is a great deal of coordination behind the scenese that goes into a successful TNR program. Examples include responding to inquiries, managing policies and procedures, coordinating the clinics, website administration, community outreach and the list goes on!
