Borrowing a Cat Depot Trap
Cat Depot loans humane traps to the public. Traps are available every day from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The traps can be signed out for seven consecutive days by members of the community. Appropriate trapping reasons include Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR), lost cat, vaccinations and other humane related circumstances.
A credit card is used as a “deposit” to borrow a trap. If a trap is not returned on the 7th consecutive day, on the 8th day, the appropriate charge is placed on the credit card. Traps must be returned in solid working condition. Broken and damaged traps will be charged the deposit fee.
Please email Cat Depot for more information or call (941) 366-2404.
