    How to start a trap and neuter program in one's local area?

    I live at the edge of town and animals are continually dumped here because it's a rural area.  We have had so many animals that end up just running wild and then of course breeding and creating a problem.  Yesterday a young cat showed up injured on my porch and I had to take this pitiful, terrified creature to animal control.  It inspired me to want to start a trap, neuter and release.  We'll never stop cats from being dumped, but if we could do something without great personal expense to help ease the population that would be ideal.  Has anyone started or worked a program? Ideas? Steps?

    There is a humane society out of Chicago that has a great website that can give you all kinds of information and resources on TNR. The organization is Tree House Humane Society and a link to the website is below. Good luck. You're idea is a compassionate one and hopefully will garner support from your community.
