Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a method for humanely and effectively reducing feral cat populations. The cats are trapped, sterilized and vaccinated, then returned to their home locations where they are fed and monitored by caretakers. New cats are immediately trapped and altered to prevent breeding. The number of cats declines gradually through attrition. TNR is widely accepted as the most effective method for reducing feral cat populations.
TNR is a comprehensive management plan that stabilizes the population by creating non-breeding colonies. TNR eliminates annoying behaviors associated with mating and improves the health of the cats. Removing feral cats creates a vacuum that is soon filled by new cats who start the breeding process all over again. TNR is less costly than other methods. holding, killing, and disposing of feral cats. TNR is fully funded by caring individuals and groups.
