The Feline Connection needs $5k for 30 Tomahawk traps.

All donations made from May 1st to June 30th, 2022 will go towards the trap fund.

Over the last four years, The Feline Connection’s fabulous community has provided many humane cat traps that we have used extensively, and the traps now need to be replaced. Many are broken and are dangerous to both cats and humans.

Because of our new relationship with VT-CAN, TFC can sterilize a large number of cats at a time, so we also need more traps. This will allow us to trap in more than one place at a time. Cats are transported in the traps after capture.

We need solid, safe equipment for everyone’s safety.

We need 30 Tomahawk traps. We are not looking for hand-me-downs or any different models. We trap constantly and need good equipment.

Problems with current equipment

  • Broken, held together with zip ties and duct tape
  • Can break cat’s tails and legs
  • Traps are loud and terrify the cats
  • Some trap triggers fail
  • Can let cats escape INSIDE the trapper’s car (has happened about 4-5 times, including with the last group!)
  • Rusty and can’t be sterilized properly
