TNR

TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) is a healthy and safe way of managing the feral and stray cat community - in hopes of reducing the sizes of the stray colonies. How TNR works is that the cat is first trapped to be brought to a vetenarian where they are spayed or neutered. In addition, the vet will test, vaccinate and treat any other illnesses or injuries the cat may have, as well as clip their ear. An ear clip on a stray/feral cat is a universal symbol that it has been spayed or neutered. Once time has passed where the cat has fully recovered - the cat is then brought back to their original colony to be released to its familiar home. If we have a kitten or an adult that we feel has the potential to be a family member - they will be brought in to be fostered in hopes of finding a permanent home!
