ICRA's aim is to improve the lives of local free-roaming and unowned cats and reduce the negative impacts of feline overpopulation in Alameda and Oakland, CA and nearby communities.

ICRA's main activities focus on trap-neuter-return (TNR), the most humane approach to reducing free-roaming cat populations. TNR involves trapping unaltered cats living on the street, spaying or neutering them, and returning them to the location where they were trapped. A managed community cat colony will eventually reduce in size due to attrition. Our own volunteers perform TNR and we also provide support to community members who are willing to help the cats in their own neighborhoods.

Most unsocialized cats are returned to their colonies, but kittens young enough to be socialized and stray adult cats who are friendly to humans are made available for adoption and live in foster homes until we find a quality permanent home.
