Trap-Neuter/Spay-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR Program)

In 2020, ARF was successful in implementing a Trap-Neuter/Spay-Vaccinate-Release (TNVR) program for feral and stray cats.  A total of 677 spaying/neutering of cats were performed since 2020. 

(2023 Program Statistics- through Feb. 2023)


This is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral and stray cats and reducing their numbers. The cats, who typically live together in a group called a colony, are trapped and brought to a veterinary clinic. They're then spayed or neutered, vaccinated and eartipped.  Ear tipping is a common sign that the community cat has been neutered / spayed and vaccinated.  After they've recovered from surgery, the cats are returned back to their original territory where a caretaker provides regular food, water and shelter.


When foster or permanent homes are available, young kittens and friendly adults are removed and placed for adoption.  Some feral cats may be relocated to homeowners with barns after the TNVR clinic where they must be provided food, water and shelter.  ARF works closely with residents requesting assistance for feral/stray cats and does not randomly trap neighborhood cats.  For more information about ARF's TNVR clinics please email


Spay/Neuter Voucher Program

ARF's voucher program was launched in July 2020, thanks to several generous donations earmarked to help people get their cats/dogs spayed or neutered.  The voucher covers approximately fifty percent of a routine spay or neuter.  In our rural area, there are many senior citizens and low-income people that need some financial assistance in order to get this important surgery done for their pet(s).  Local veterinarians, Dr. Kimberly Wolfrum and Ferdinand Veterinary Clinic both accept ARF vouchers.   If interested in a spay/neuter voucher please email or contact ARF's Voucher Program Coordinator via text message at (208) 983-6571.




In 2020, ARF coordinated with SpokAnimal (Spokane, WA) and McPaws (McCall, ID) to help us find adoptive homes for animals in foster care.  Also, when individuals contact ARF trying to find homes for cats/kittens/dogs/puppies in their care, if these animals don’t get adopted locally, ARF helps coordinate the transfer of these animals to shelters where they can be adopted.  We are grateful for the coordination of our partner shelters to help us find homes for animals in need.  We transferred 1022 cats/kittens/dogs/puppies to our partner shelters since 2020.  If you are interested in having ARF help you find a home, please contact ARF via email at
