​​​​​​Broward County is home to thousands of Community Cats--unowned cats that live outdoors.

Some of these cats are part of a cat colony and are cared for by a Colony Caregiver. Other cats simply roam freely throughout neighborhoods and communities.

In 2015, the Broward County Chapter 4 Animal Care Ordinance was amended to allow for Community Cat Management Programs. The goal is to reduce the overpopulation of Community Cats within Broward County through two sterilization programs:

  • Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)
  • Return to Field (RTF)

For more information or questions about Community Cat Programs, including questions about borrowing traps, please e-mail CommunityCats@Broward.org.​

Animal Care is proud to partner with many veterinary clinics to provide TNR services for community cats. Residents who need assistance with community cats, including trapping and sterilization services may contact:
