Why Trap-Neuter-Return is important.












You may have seen these letters and wondered what they meant. TNR is used to refer to Trap-Neuter-Return  the only proven method to be humane and effective when controlling feral cat colony populations. 


Many considerate animal lovers feed feral cats and that has resulted in numerous established feral cat colonies. Using TNR, all of the cats in the colony are trapped, neutered and then returned to their established territories. Friendly adults and young kittens who can still be socialized are often placed in foster care and adopted out to good homes after a time.
