Hands Helping Paws is a nonprofit incorporated organization aimed at reducing and stabilizing unwanted feral cat populations via trap, neuter/spay and return program in Norman. Hands Helping Paws is not a rescue shelter, animal abuse hot line, for-profit organization, or cat sanctuary. However, in the process of TNR we run across adoptable strays and/or kittens that we will rescue and put into foster care. Once they are socialized and a certification of clean health they are put up for adoption for a "Forever Loving Home".

Hands Helping Paws, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are used for medical care, spaying/neutering, food and supplies for our rescued kitties. Donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support.

General Information about Feral Cats and the TRN Program:

What is a feral cat? Feral and Stray have significantly different meanings. Stray cats are those who have been abandoned or have become lost after wandering away from home. Strays are often successfully re-socialized and adopted. However, feral cats are the wild offspring of domestic cats that were abandoned or lost and allowed to breed uncontrolled. Because feral cats know nothing of domestic life, they are wild from birth and cannot be easily socialized or adopted into a human family.

Why not humanely euthanize them all? When a cat colony becomes the target of extermination, or the cats are removed from their living areas, it creates a vacuum effect and allows for more feral cats to come in and breed. However, cats that are sterilized, fed and watered will protect their territory and most importantly, NOT BREED. This also reduces fighting among cats, intrusions into garbage cans and yards and reduces the potential of spreading disease to domesticated animals.
