Bellevue's TNR Program Aids In Reducing Feral Cat Population

TNR is a humane way to control the feral cat population.

The Village of Bellevue has created a feral cat trap, neuter, and return (TNR) program in conjunction with Cats   Anonymous. The TNR program is a    humane way to control the feral cat population.  In this program, cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, given a rabies shot and returned to their original location under the care of an individual called a caretaker.   Feral cats that have been spayed or neutered have a cropped ear.

If you are caring for a feral/semi-feral, outdoor or barn cat and would like to participate in the TNR program, please contact the Animal Control/Humane Officer, Monica Hoff at (920) 819-6709 The veterinarians at Cats Anonymous are volunteer veterinarians.

To assist in covering the cost of medicine and anesthetics, the Village has partnered Cats Anonymous and has received a grant. 

Be Prepared for Severe Weather

Village public safety officials are alerting citizens to be prepared and vigilant for severe weather, including tornadoes. Understanding risk is an important part of tornado safety. Fortunately, most tornado warnings turn out to be just severe thunderstorms. But tornadoes form with little or no warning and their paths are completely unpredictable. They can also be transparent until they touch down. As a result of the severity of risk related to severe weather, everyone should take immediate action when a tornado warning is issued.
