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)
