Humane live traps are available for rental to assist in Trap-Neuter-Release in your community. You may rent a humane cat trap from Young Williams Animal Center for free with a $25.00 deposit, payable by cash or check, which will be refunded when the trap is returned in its original, working condition. To rent a trap, you can stop by 3201 Division Street or 6400 Kingston Pike or give Christi Jarvis, our Community Cat Program Coordinator a call at 865-556-9729.
In addition to our live traps, we offer 2 types of humane cat deterrents for rent. Community Cats are some of the best natural pest deterrents on earth! However, sometimes they can come with their own pesky behavior. If community cats are causing you unwanted problems, we have some great options that should help! These deterrents are available for free with a deposit of $25.00, payable by cash or check. Funds will be held for the duration of the rental. Once the deterrents have been returned in good working order, your deposit will be refunded.
We offer the Hoont solar powered, motion activated, ultrasonic option that emits a high frequency, harmless sound only heard by the animal that is great for use in gardens or flower beds, near the entrances to your house or garage, and around crawl spaces or outbuildings.
We also offer the Hoont Cobra motion activated, water powered deterrent that works especially well around your house as it has to be connected to a hose. When it detects an animal’s motion, it sprays a quick burst of water towards it.
