How to Draft a Trap-Neuter-Return Ordinance

Since 1990, Alley Cat Allies has been the only national organization practicing and promoting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and the humane care of feral cats. As a result of this experience, we are regularly contacted by communities and legislative bodies across the country that are seeking our input on ordinances. They ask us both to review draft ordinances and to suggest appropriate language for inclusion in those drafts.
