We can all agree there are too many cats living outside!  

These felines are called community cats and range from feral (unsocialized) to semi-feral to friendly. Feral cats have little human contact, and have always lived outside. When the kittens are caught early enough (between 6weeks and 3 months), they can be socialized in foster homes and adopted out.  But the fact is there are far too many kittens overwhelming shelters nationwide.

TNR seeks to reduce the number of community cats while increasing their quality of life.  After a community cat has been spayed or neutered and vaccinated, it is returned to the original colony where it can live out a full, healthy, non-reproductive life. 

TNR is endorsed by the American Veterinary Medical Association. TNR is the least costly as well as the most efficient and humane way of stabilizing and ultimately reducing the feral cat population.
