Feral Cats & TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return)

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane approach to addressing cat overpopulation in a community and it works. It saves cats’ lives and is effective. TNR improves the lives of cats, addresses community concerns, reduces complaints about cats and stops the breeding cycle. TNR improves the co-existence between outdoor cats and humans in our shared environment. This is why so many cities are adopting a TNR Program.

Scientific studies and communities with TNR programs are proof that TNR reduces and stabilizes populations of community cats. Alley Cat Allies was formed in 1990 to bring TNR—which was already successful in the UK—to the U.S. They launched a national movement with educational materials, regional workshops, mobilization of advocates, and re-writing of laws.  As a result of this hard work, TNR has become mainstream.

In a Trap-Neuter-Return program, community cats are humanely trapped, 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.
