Facts about Trap-Neuter and Return Programs

  • TNR is a humane and effective method for reducing stray cat populations in urban and suburban areas.
  • Males that are neutered do not fight other animals or spray to mark territory.
  • TNR services include a rabies vaccine and other treatments that prevent diseases in animals and humans.
  • Removing a cat colony entirely creates a "vacuum effect" which encourages new, untreated cats to move in and take their place. TNR and maintaining a current cat colony prevents this from occurring.
  • Cat colonies provide effective and free pest control to neighborhoods.
