Welcome to PBC Cats
PBC Cats, INC.
PBC CATS, INC. assists the residents of Palm Beach County, Florida with Trap-Neuter-Return of stray and feral cats. Our volunteers assist in Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), an innovative technique which involves trapping unsterilized cats living in a colony, having them spayed/neutered, vaccinated against rabies, marked for identification and returning them to their original location. A caretaker then provides regular food, shelter and monitors the colony over time. With TNR, the cats’ reproductive capacity is eliminated - leading to a gradual decline in their numbers, and nuisance behavior is substantially reduced. Where possible we assist in finding temporary placement for kittens with other rescue groups for future adoption, however, our primary goal is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
Trap-Neuter-return FEE IS: $85.00 first cat then $50.00 a cat after per cat. Return trip $85.00 first cat then $50.00 per cat. ( includes Spay/neuter, rabie shot and a microchip.)

Our mission is to provide Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) for stray and feral cats in the Palm Beach County Area. (Provided there is a colony caretaker at each location to provide food, water and medical attention when needed. ) We also assist the public in trapping any injured or sick cat so that the caregiver may take it to a vet.
We’re trying to slow down the euthanasia rate presently practiced by Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control (at the Shelter on Belvedere Road).
Why We need to do TNR ?
TNR has many advantages. It stabilizes the size of the colony by eliminating new litters. The sterilized colony guards its territory, prevents unsterilized cats from moving in and beginning the cycle of overpopulation and problem behavior. The population in a managed colony is reduced by attrition over time as kittens and tamable adult cats are removed to adoptive homes and there are no new generations to take their place. The previous programs of trap and kill have not worked. Another advantage to TNR is that, it lessens the number of kittens and cats flowing into local shelters. This results in lower euthanasia rates and the increased adoption of cats already in the shelters.
TNR is not just the best alternative to controlling feral cat populations - it is the only one that works. Doing nothing has resulted in the current crisis in Palm Beach County. Feral cats number in the thousands and possibly a half-million. TNR is a movement that will continue to grow as more and more caring people see its potential and, in time, it will become the predominant method of feral cat population control.
Cats living in an outdoor environment also provide a degree of natural rodent control.
