What is Trap-Neuter-Release?

TNR is a program in which outdoor cats are humanely trapped, brought to a vet to be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and finally ear tipped. The ear tipping is a universal sign that an outdoor or fetal cat has been neutered and vaccinated. After the vet visit, they are returned to their community.

Why Trap-Neuter-Release?

In the past, feline overpopulation was dealt with by catching and killing feral or outdoor cats. Many found this to be a cruel practice, as once a feline was captured and killed another would take it’s place. The new cats breed and the whole cycle starts over again. But another solution was discovered. Trap-Neuter-Release. This was found to be a much more efficient, and cost effective, way to control the wild feline population.
