TNR & Feral Cats

What is TNR?                                                                                                                          TNR is trap, neutered, and returned. By using TNR feral cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped, and then returned to their home outside. TNR is the only way to humanely stabilize the cat population.

Feral cats are not socialized to people and the outdoors is their home. Feral cats are scared of people. They  bond to members of their colony, as well as their outdoor home.

Since feral cats are fearful of people they are not able to be adopted. The best outcome for the feral cats is to go through the  TNR process.
