Every Home Needs a Cat and Every Cat Needs a Home
What Is a Feral Cat?
According to the Humane Society of the United States, tens of millions of un-owned cats live outdoors, and most rely on humans for food and shelter. These cats can be truly un-socialized ferals or friendly strays that have been lost or abandoned.
What Is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)?
Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped (the universal symbol of a sterilized feral cat), and returned to their outdoor homes, where they are monitored by caretakers. Research has shown that, when correctly implemented, TNR stabilizes and reduces feral cat populations, eliminates undesirable behaviors associated with mating, and is more effective and cost-efficient than lethal control
