Trap, Neuter, Return for Cats

Trap Neuter Return (TNR) is a program through which feral/free-roaming community cats (not belonging to particular humans) are humanely trapped, transported to a veterinarian where they are sterilized, rabies vaccinated, ear-tipped (left ear) returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. The ear-tipping of a cat is the universal sign of an altered feral (community) cat. This is the most humane, effective and financially sustainable strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations and the only proven humane and effective method to manage community cat colonies.

Once TNR is in place, the cats will no longer reproduce; the population will stabilize and eventually decline. TNR stops reproduction and therefore mating behaviors such as fighting, roaming, spraying, yowling or fighting stops. This helps the cats become better neighbors to everyone. The cats are rabies vaccinated and are less susceptible to infectious diseases. This will help improve the overall health of the cats. This is a win, win for us all.
