Trap-Neuter-Return Program for Feral and Community Cats
What is TNR?
TNR stands for trap-neuter-return. TNR is a program in which feral, outdoor cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped, tattooed, and returned to the location where they were found. Then, community cat caregivers help provide these feral colonies with food, water, and shelter. Learn how to trap a cat with the Trap King.
What are feral cats?
A feral cat is a domestic cat that has developed a natural fear of humans. Most feral cats are the result of abandonment and failure to spay/neuter. These cats are acclimated to their outdoor lifestyle and would not adjust well to an indoor home. Along with other unowned, free-roaming cats, these are collectively known as community cats.
