Request for T/N/V/R Assistance
All colonies put through S.N.K.I.'s T/N/V/R Program become "managed" feral cat colonies. In order to be eligible for Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative's T/N/V/R (Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return) Program, you must be willing to continue to care for, provide shelter for and to provide food for the colony for the duration of its lifetime. An on-site visit to view the colony and location, by a member of S.N.K.I., is required - at our discretion - prior to acceptance into the program. Note that all cats accepted into and fixed through our Program will be "ear tipped".

We will then contact the primary caretaker by phone or email to verify that s/he is a bona fide colony worker. Beyond this first contact, personal information supplied for caretakers will only be used for administrative purposes, and will not be shared with any third party.
