Trap, Neuter and Release Program (TNR)
Feral cats may have been born wild, or once been domesticated and turned wild to survive. Left unaltered, free-roaming cats can continue to reproduce at an alarming rate, creating more homeless kittens. Some communities find these cats and kittens a nuisance and want to be rid of them, while others show their concern by feeding them. Unfortunately, it is not enough to just feed them. These cats must be spayed and neutered so that they can no longer reproduce and leave more sick and hungry kittens to fend for themselves.
Our Trap, Neuter and Release program tackles overpopulation at its core. Spaying, neutering and returning these cats to their territory, allows them to enjoy their lives while ensuring no more kittens are born into this hard existence. By limiting free-roaming cat populations, fewer unwanted and homeless cats are taken to shelters and euthanized.
According to scientific studies, free-roaming cats gain weight and live healthier lives after being altered. TNR programs are proven to stabilize and significantly reduce the size of feral and stray cat colonies.
