IMPORTANT NOTICE: TNR clinics and veterinary offices have held fast during these crazy and difficult months due to the pandemic. They too have been impacted by Covid 19 resulting in an onslaught of requests for TNR and routine medical appointments. They are true heros that have kept the doors open providing care for pets and supported TNR efforts! Sometimes things are beyond our control and we ask that you please understand we are doing our best. Due to this and the high number of trap-neuter-return (TNR) requests we will be responding to requests for assistance but please be advised it could be several weeks or more before we can take action. TNR is a group effort so any help with requests when asking for assistance is always appreciated as this is a group effort to making a difference in the lives of community cats.
At the moment we have on-going TNR Projects we are working on and are faced with a shortage of funding, volunteers, and foster support. There are many areas that assistance is needed when coordinating a TNR project in order to pull it all together. If you are interested in learning more on how you can help, please click here.

One of our trappers got this little one while working on a TNR Project. Sadly, this is the case for many kittens born in the wild due to female cats that are left un-spayed. It is not the best life for kittens who come into the world defenseless and are left to deal with the elements of the weather, etc. Your support enables us to save lives like this little one! Thank you for your support and kindness and joining us on this amazing journey in making a difference in the lives of community cats! #communitycatsFXBG
WHO WE ARE
Operation Hood is a non-profit all volunteer organization who works with the community to reduce the number of abandoned, unwanted cats through their TNR program. We depend on community support for funding to assist with the TNR costs and veterinary care of the cats who were previously rescued from Hood Drive, and currently reside within a safe haven area we refer to as “The Fence." Join us on our journey to help make a difference in the lives of community cats!
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is only method proven to be humane and effective at controlling community cat population growth.
HOW TO HELP
You can help us, help them.
You can be part of our mission to save cats and provide them with a loving environment, medical care and the necessities for a thriving life.
community ∙ the "Fence" safe haven ∙ risk of euthanasia
Operation Hood receives an influx of requests for various TNR (Trap, Neuter, RETURN) projects. Many requests ask that we remove the cats from the area or if we can take them in at the Fence. The Fence currently is occupied by cats that were rescued from Hood Drive and is at capacity. Therefore, we are not able to take in cats at this time. We are aware there are circumstances in which a cat cannot be returned to the area it was trapped due to various reasons. We are able to assist with trapping of cats, having them spayed/neutered (as funding allows) and then RETURN them to the location they were trapped where a caretaker will resume with providing shelter, water and food daily.
