In New Jersey, cats are the third highest species of animal to encounter rabies. This is largely due to the numbers of stray unvaccinated cats that are found throughout New Jersey. 

Trap & Neuter Programs

Trap and neuter programs promote vaccinations and the keeping of cat colonies with population control. However, newly vaccinated cats remain protected for only one year and eventually become susceptible again to rabies. Once a stray cat is trapped, it is extremely difficult to trap again for revaccination. 

Don't Feed Feral Cats

As such, given the nocturnal habits, feral cats are more likely to encounter wild raccoons and skunks (the natural reservoir for rabies), for this reason we strongly recommend not feeding feral cats.
