Trap–neuter–return

Trap–neuter–return (TNR) is a type of program through which free-roaming cats are trapped, spayed and neutered, then returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. If those locations are deemed unsafe or otherwise inappropriate, the cats may be relocated (barn/farmyard homes are often considered ideal). Kittens young enough to be socialized and friendly adult cats may be placed in shelters or foster care for eventual adoption into homes as companion animals rather than returned to the outdoors. A variant name is trap–neuter/spay–return (TNSR).

Getting TNR-certified can be a very useful thing, especially when you are trying to maintain a major feral cat colony population. In New York State, Neighborhood Cats offers classes in person free of charge. If taken online, you will be charged. The certification includes the ability to use/borrow humane cat traps and schedule a pick up time in your area to spay/neuter and vaccinate the cats you capture. Feral cats are released one to three days after surgery, but friendlier ones can be put up for adoption. To learn more about this, go to www.neighborhoodcats.org Source: I am a cat colony volunteer and have taken the TNR-certification class :3
