Trap-Neuter-Return Program

TNR is the only humane way to stabilize the feral cat population. While a stray cat abandoned by its owner might approach you, a feral cat will not. A stray, often looking unkempt, might check out the food you offer it right away, a feral, appearing well groomed, will not. Strays tend to be vocal and maybe seen at all hours of the day, while feral cats will be silent and are most often active at night.

Through TNR, feral cats can be neutered and vaccinated, resulting in populations stabilization and decreases. TNR makes cats healthier and ends the breeding cycle, which means no more kittens.
