What is Trap, Neuter, Release ?
Trap Neuter and Release programs (TNR) are one of the most effective ways to control populations of cats without owners; sometimes called strays, ferals, or community cats. Feral cats are not outdoor cats that have owners but are semi-wild cats. Some patience is required with the TNR method, as it is a long-term solution instead of an immediate one. Spaying/ neutering all of the feral cats in a given area stops the cycle of reproduction and the suffering of future kittens. By releasing cats back to their territory, the cats already occupying the area keep new cats from coming in to use available resources and reproducing. Whereas, simply removing feral cats from an area creates an area with available resources for new cats to perpetuate the cycle. Help your community cats by participating in our feral cat spay and neuter program. To the community members that are able to trap feral cats, we provided this low-cost service.
