What is TNR?

Trap-Neuter-Return, or "TNR," is the most humane and effective method in helping Community Cats not only get medical care, but to help in reducing the outdoor population of cats, and limiting the numbers of kittens born on the streets.  Cats are trapped and brought to a veterinary clinic. They're then spayed or neutered, vaccinated against diseases, and ear tipped (the tip of one ear is cut off and sealed in a painless procedure, which allows rescuers to know if a cat has been through the TNR process or not). After an animal has recovered from the procedures, they are returned back to their original area where a caretakers continue to provides food, clean water and shelter, and monitor the cats for any additional medical needs.

How Can YOU Help Outdoor Cats?

The best way is to get TNR Certified!  You TOO can learn to trap and get (often free of very low cost) help for the outdoor cats that call your area home. There is an abundance of information on certification, as well as multiple resources to help you along the way.
