Traps

If you do not have traps, we have traps you can borrow. The traps can be picked up on a prescheduled date and time prior to each clinic at the Pendleton County Extension Office, 45 David Pribble Dr, Falmouth in the parking lot. If you are unable to pick up traps on those dates and times, please call or text (859) 910-9259 or email humanesocietynky@gmail.com. Trap return instructions will be provided upon pickup of your community cat(s) from the clinic.

See link “Trapping Instructions” for details on when and how to properly trap Community Cats. All trapping should be complete prior to going to bed the night BEFORE the clinic, with cats safely covered and sheltered for the overnight. No trapping should occur overnight as this leaves the cats unprotected from predators and the elements. This also decreases the probability of trapping other animals (raccoons/opossums) and increases the probability of being able to trap the animals you signed up for.
