Feral Cat TNR Program

Beverly Hills Feral Cat TNR Program Ordinance 09-0-2568 is also known as the Hobbs-Bojeaux Ordinance.

On September 15th, 2009, the City of Beverly Hills City Council adopted the Beverly Hills Feral Cat TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) Program in efforts to humanely manage the Beverly Hills feral cat population. The Feral Cat TNR Program was developed in collaboration with City staff, residents, and feral cat experts. 

Feral cats live permanently outside of a domestic home and are not owned and cared for as are companion animals or pets.  This is normally the result of their having been born feral or having been abandoned by an owner.

Feral Cat TNR Program Goals

  • Reduce feral cat population over time
  • Reduce impacts on neighborhoods
  • Address health and safety concerns and impacts from feral cats
  • Vaccinate, neuter, and provide health care to feral cats as needed; and
  • Find homes for adoptable feral cats and kittens through volunteer cat rescue organizations.

The Community Preservation Division regulates the Feral Cat TNR Program. Those interested in participating may submit an application for a TNR Partner or Individual Permit by contacting the Community Preservation Division at (310) 285-1119.
