What is the TNR Program?
The TNR Program stands for trap neuter and release. If you find a stray cat give us a call and we can make sure that it is provided for. It is a humane approach to help reduce and stabilize a communities cat population.
Trap-Neuter-Release or TNR is a humane approach to helping address a community’s cat population. This program helps improve the cat’s lives, and helps keep community concerns and complaints about the cat population down. It stops the breeding cycle of community cats while allowing them to stay and live in the community.
This program helps solve the issues of the other programs, like catch and kill, adoption, relocation, and cat sanctuaries. The TNR program has been shown to help reduce and stabilize the community cat population.
How does it work?
In a Trap-Neuter-Release program, community cats are humanely trapped (with box traps), brought to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, eartipped (the universal sign that a community cat has been neutered and vaccinated), and then returned to their outdoor home.
If you happen to find a stray cat that has not been eartipped, please contact us so we can help to trap, neuter, and release it so it may continue to live it’s life in the community.
