Feral Cat Program
Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate & Return (TNVR)
TNVR is the internationally proven practice of humanely trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating, then returning (to their colonies) feral or free-roaming (outside) community cats. Successful TNVR involves a volunteer colony caretaker who provides food and adequate shelter and monitors the cats’ health. TNVR has been shown to be the least costly, most efficient and most humane way to stabilize cat populations.
