Trap-Neuter-Return, or “TNR,” is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral or community cat populations. Spaying and neutering eliminates reproduction, greatly reduces nuisance behavior including unaltered males spraying to mark territory, roaming and fighting, yowling and other noises associated with mating. The cats themselves are healthier and less likely to spread feline disease.
TNR appointments are expressly for those working on reducing the cat population in their community. TNR appointments are not for owned cats. All cats that are brought for a TNR appointment will be
- Spayed or neutered
- Ear tipped for easy identification in the community. The ear tip lets others know this cat has been altered. Note: There will be no exceptions to the ear tip being done for TNR cats.
- Vaccinated for Rabies.
These appointments are not subject to a rescheduling fee. We will gladly reschedule you for another day if you are not able to catch the cat.
We recommend that cats are brought in a feral trap but can come in a normal cat carrier if they are able to be handled.
