Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed and neutered and returned to their place of origin.
Since 2014 over 300 feral cats have been spayed/neutered through this program in El Dorado County.
El Dorado County Humane Society also collaborates with El Dorado County Animal Services in the cases of hoarding situations.

Feral colony managers are provided with dry cat food on a supplement, not sustain basis. Managers have been identified as being low-income or fixed-income county residents.
All of the cats within a colony must be fixed or efforts being made to spay/neuter all remaining in-tact cats. Feral cats are targeted for support since they often belong to no one and are considered "community cats" thereby the responsibility of the local community.
Education seminars are planned to be held in the multi-purpose room at our facilities. Topics will include bottle feeding kittens, how to humanely trap feral cats and companion animals basic health and temperament issues.
All local animal welfare groups will be asked to both present and attend the seminars. Speakers will also go into local schools to teach children the basics of animal welfare.
