We are Ferry's Ferals and we perform TNR (trap, neuter, return) on the feral cat population of South Florida! We know that community cats can often feel like personal pets, this is why we take great pride in ensuring our ferals receive excellent treatment while they are in our care.
For us, it all started with a feral named Ferry! One of our founders began caring for Ferry in 2021. Eventually, Ferry had a litter of kittens, and then another, and then another. That's when we decided to step in and do the right thing for her (and her kitten, Gidget).
Performing TNR on Ferry and Gidget was so rewarding that we decided to make it "official" and founded Ferry's Ferals, after our first feral Ferry! (Say that five times fast). Ferry's Ferals has one goal; to perform TNR on the feral cat population in South Florida with care and compassion.
Thank you for joining us as we set out to proudly serve South Florida's ferals!
WHAT IS TNR?
Our team learns about the specific feral cat and its behaviors in order to plan a humane trapping experience while attempting to minimize their stress levels.
We partner with reputable vets in South Florida who are feral-friendly. At this stage, the feral cat is also vaccinated and receives an "ear tip" as a universal sign that this cat has been through TNR.
We keep the cats in our recovery room for at least 24 hours. Once we are sure the cat has had no complications from surgery and is alert enough to be released, they are returned back to their cat communities.
