The Feral Cat Coalition maintains a stock in excess of 200 humane traps around San Diego County that are available for loan, at no charge, to the public. The traps that we have found to suit our needs best are available from:
Tomahawk Live Trap Company
PO Box 155
Hazelhurst, WI 54531
Phone: (715) 356-4600 or
Fax: (715) 356-4611
They have sizes available for all animals. The model that we have used, that seems to suit our needs, is the model 106. It is constructed of 1"x1" 14ga. galvanized steel wire mesh and measures 26" x 9" x 9". It is light, easy to clean and maintain, and quite sturdy. The model 106 sells for about $50, plus shipping.
There is also a model 606, which is identical but has an openable door in the back of the trap. This model sells for about $7 more, but the added door can be quite handy.
Call Tomahawk for a catalog. They accept orders over the phone and take checks, money orders, Visa, and MasterCard.
You can also check out their website, where you can view their entire product line as well as place orders. Visit Tomahawk Live Traps, and use the menu on the left to navigate to "Original Series Traps," then "Rigid Traps with One Trap Door" or "Rigid Traps with One Trap Door and Easy Release Door." Or you can fill in the desired model number in the website's search box.
