What we do: Deliver traps, set traps, bait traps, and provide covers for traps in the late after noon-evening. Client calls in the morning to let us know if there are cats in traps. (if you cannot check traps in the mornings, or re-set/re-bait traps in the evenings there will be additional fees. See above). Cats are picked up in the mornings, and delivered to vet's office, and returned to your property when cat is ready.
Additional services: (prices are subject to change)
Trapping with Delivery to Kern County Animal Control:
Prices start at:$35.00 set up and delivery of traps
$45.00 per cat
$35.00 per day to check/re-bait traps. If client can close traps in the morning and reset/re-bait traps in the evening this fee is waived.
If you have a large number of cats please call for quote, and we will also make an appointment with KCAC if they are willing to receive more cats per day.
KCAC will accept two feral cats a day (infant kittens counted as one.) Cats will be assessed for adopt-ability, and health by KCAC. KCAC will decide whether or not to spay/neuter and return the cat to the property from which it came. For complaints or concerns about the cats being returned call 321-3000, this policy is mandated by KCAC and not Bakersfield Cat Control. When cats are received by KCAC they will decide the fate of the cat(s). Warning: if you are using KCAC as a means to have your feral cats spayed/neutered there is no guarantee that the cats will be coming back as it is up to their discretion once they receive the cats. Bakersfield Cat Control cannot be held liable for cats returned or not returned.
*Infant kittens are kittens that are young enough that they don't require trapping.

Listening to our clients has helped us thrive and run a successful business.
What we need from you:
Why people hire us?
Many people find themselves in a situation of having too many cats that are not spayed/neutered, and are breeding out of control. Often when this happens many people don't have the ability or time to trap, and remove the cats themselves. We are not out to trap people's pets but we do advise people to make sure their pets have collars on their cats so that we don't accidentally trap a pet. We do understand that a cat with a tipped ear has been spayed/neutered. already.
What's TNR? Trap Neuter Return- Some people with feral colonies want to keep their cats, but they don't want them to continue to breed so TNR is an option for some people.
What happens if the cats go to Kern County Animal Control? Once the cats are delivered to Kern County Animal Control it it up to KCAC to determine their fate.
What's a feral cat?
Cats that have never been socialized or have been abandoned by their owners.
I have some pet cats that I no longer want, can you take them? If you are the owner and the cats are friendly then we prefer that you take the cats to KCAC yourself. If you are disabled and unable to care for the cats or they are friendly strays that wandered onto your property then yes we will be glad to help you. Kern County Animal Control charges a surrender fee for pets so expect to pay for their charges and ours.
Why can't you find homes for the cats? We are not a rescue. If you want the cat to have a new home then it is suggested that you call and find a rescue to take the cat(s).
