The TNR Solution to Feral Cat Populations

TNR is a proven procedure in which entire colonies of feral cats are:

  • Humanely trapped
  • Evaluated
  • Vaccinated
  • Neutered by veterinarians
  • Returned to their outdoor environment
  • Provided with food

The breeding stops. Annoying behavior of breeding cats stops and eventually the populations are reduced.


To encourage those with feral colonies to get them neutered and spayed! 

We pay $5 for every cat humanely trapped, neutered, successfully returned to their colony. 

  • Ears are tipped after surgery to show the cat has been neutered.
  • If you need help, we are willing to teach you how to trap the cats and how to care for your colonies as well.
  • The customer pays nothing for any of this!
