The City of Logan (city) and Cache Humane Society (CHS) are pleased to announce a
trial program for a joint Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for community cats which
will be funded through a grant from Dell Loy Hansen and Diana Ribera. The trial period
will run from April 1 – May 31, 2019.
City animal control officers will set live traps for feral (community) cats on Wednesdays,
and if cats are trapped will deliver them to CHS for their regularly scheduled surgery day
on Thursdays. CHS will neuter, ear tip and vaccinate cats, and return them to the
location they were trapped.
To quote from Alley Cat Allies website: https://www.alleycat.org/our-work/trap-neuter-
“Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), the humane approach to addressing community cat
populations, works. It saves cats’ lives and is effective. TNR improves the lives of cats,
addresses community concerns, reduces complaints about cats, and stops the breeding
cycle. TNR improves the co-existence between outdoor cats and humans in our shared
environment. This is why so many cities are adopting it. Scientific studies and
communities with TNR programs are proof that TNR reduces and stabilizes populations
of community cats.”
If citizens are aware of locations where management of community cats is needed,
please give police dispatch a call at (435) 753-7555 so they can place a trap.
Both organizations wish to thank Dell Loy Hansen and Diana Ribera for making this
program possible and appreciate the efforts of the Hansen and Ribera family to further
animal welfare in the city; we see this joint TNR program as a first step to continue to
find ways we can cooperate in that effort.
