TRAP - NEUTER - RETURN (TNR)

photoWhat is a feral cat?
A feral cat is a cat that was born outside and has never been socialized with humans. A feral cat can also be a house cat that was lost or thrown out, and over time forgets how to be domesticated, and reverts to a feral (wild) state as a means of survival.

What is a colony?
Feral cats often live in family groups, or colonies.

What is Trap Neuter Return (TNR)?
It is a nonlethal means of population control, in which all the cats in a colony are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered and vaccinated. They are also ear-tipped. Ear-tipping is a relatively painless procedure, in which just the tip of the left ear is surgically removed. This universal symbol lets others know that the cat has been spayed or neutered. The cats are then released back to their original environment, where food, water and shelter are provided by colony caretakers.
