In a Trap-Neuter-Return program, community cats are
humanely trapped, brought to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered,
vaccinated, and eartipped (the universal sign that a cat has been part
of a TNR program), and then returned to their outdoor homes. TNR helps
community cats by relieving them of the stresses of mating and breeding,
and protecting them from diseases.
Communities benefit from TNR because it reduces and stabilizes community cat populations, saves tax-payers’ dollars, helps shelters focus on adoptions, and provides a humane and collaborative way to address concerns and coexist with cats.
