So You’ve Decided to TNR

3.27/5 (15)

By choosing to perform Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), you’ve taken the first step in improving the lives of cats in your community! Way to go! The kitties you’re helping will thank you because you’ll be saving female cats from the stress of pregnancy and male cats from mating behaviors like fighting and roaming. The cat population will be stabilized and reduced, and they’ll become better neighbors as the “nuisance behaviors” associated with mating decrease.

To get started, let’s talk about creating a plan of action. First, you’ll want to assess and target a specific area or colony of cats for TNR, and then speak with community members to let them know your plans and gain their support. You can do this by sharing information with them on how TNR will improve both cats’ lives and the neighborhood. Next, you’ll need to focus on the logistic side of trapping, such as scheduling spay and neuter appointments in advance, and organizing trapping equipment. Once you have worked through all these details, you’ll find that the TNR process will be less overwhelming (it’s actually fun!), and you can begin improving cats’ lives through TNR. We hope you’re as excited as we are!
