Trap - Neuter - Vaccinate - Return program for the feral cats at Sosua Ocean Village.
On behalf of our residential community, we would like to thank the nonprofit volunteer-based organization Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic DCDR, all of their volunteers and doctors, our resident volunteer Renn Ho'aloha Loren for doing such a fantastic job!
DCDR professionals recently trapped, spayed and neutered 12 community cats living in the Sosua Ocean Village neighborhood. They have all been returned to the community now, healthy, happy, vaccinated, and dewormed.
Do you know why wild cats need to be spayed?
Trap - Neuter - Vaccinate - Return is the most humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. It enhances their lives, their relationships with the people, and decreases the size of colonies over time.
⁃ It relieves cats of the constant stresses of mating and pregnancy;
⁃ Cats’ physical health improves;
⁃ Cats are vaccinated against rabies;
⁃ Cats live long, healthy lives;
⁃ The population stabilizes - no more kittens;
⁃ Cats become better neighbors.
At Sosua Ocean Village, we believe that caring for those who are weak, sick, or helpless is an important aspect of living in a civilized society. We take full responsibility for our tiniest creatures and their well-being.
