Guidelines for Management of Feral Cat Population

 

What is TNR?
TNR stands for Trap, Neuter, Release.  This is a management strategy for humanely reducing populations of free-roaming domestic cats.
TNR generally includes: assessment of colonies; humane trapping, maintenance with food, fresh water, and shelter; and monitoring to assure that newcomers are altered immediately.
The cats, who typically live together in a group called a colony, are trapped and brought to a veterinary clinic.
They're then spayed or neutered, vaccinated and ear tipped. After they've recovered from their surgeries, the cats are returned back to their original territory where a caretaker provides regular food and shelter.

 

What is ear tipping?
Ear tipping involves surgically removing a small portion of one of a cat's ears while the cat is under anesthesia for spay or neuter surgery.
It is the universally accepted way to signify that a community cat has been spayed or neutered, which means no new kittens will be born.
