What is TNVR?
TNVR is the internationally proven practice of humanely trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating, ear tipping feral or outdoor cats and then returning them to their neighborhoods. Successful TNVR involves a volunteer caretaker who provides food and water. TNVR has been shown to be the least costly, most efficient and most humane way to stabilize cat populations. There is a lot of bad information from people who do not like cats and from some media in our community. These are the facts.
TNVR stabilizes the outdoor cat population (fewer to no births), resulting in lower animal control costs, reducing nuisance complaints by residents, addressing neighbors’ concerns, alleviating public health concerns, and improving the cats’ lives. Additionally, cats provide rodent control for the neighborhood or businesses. Cats put in this program are unsocial and therefore not unadoptable.
