What is TNR?
TNR stands for Trap-Neuter-Return, and is used to help control the stray and feral cat population in a humane and effective way. According to Alley Cat Allies, "Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes."
Why should I TNR?
Every year, usually in the spring, the stray/feral cat population skyrockets! It is during this "kittten season" that shelters become inundated with cats and kittens and requests to take in cats and kittens that they cannot fulfiull due to overpopulation and lack of space. By spaying the females, it helps reduce the population of unwanted cats, and by neutering the males, the number of cat fights and spraying can be reduced as well. By participating in TNR, you are helping to reduce the number of unwanted neighborhood cats, improving the health and wellness of the stray and feral cats, and you are helping lighten the burden placed on shelters such as Kitten Krazy.
