Community Cat Program

This community-oriented approach to life-saving and population management is dependent on the help of supporters like you!

There are three primary ways that you can get involved:


The Lawrence Humane Society offers a unique community cat volunteer program for interested members of the community. This team plays an integral role as liaisons between the community and the Lawrence Humane Society. They will educate, help trap and transport, and coordinate services PRIOR to trapping. Volunteers will also canvas neighborhoods of known feral cat colonies to initiate the conversation of TNVR with community members and caretakers.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Transporting cats to and from their colonies.
  • Power-washing traps after the TNR.
  • Sewing trap covers.
  • Organizing special events.
  • Canvassing neighborhoods.

This is a separate volunteer entity from our standard volunteer program. It has its own training programs, orientations and requirements.  There will be no minimum hours required each month as the needs of the program will depend on services needed within the community. You do not have to be a current Lawrence Humane Society volunteer to participate in this program.  You must be 18 years or older to participate without an associated adult present.
