Benefits of Trap-Neuter-Return

TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) is a humane approach to managing feral cat colonies while keeping the animals’ welfare in mind. Feral cats are unsocialized, outdoor cats who are not suitable as indoor pets, due to the stress they experience from human contact and confinement. This stress compromises the welfare of those cats when admitted to shelters and can lead to limited positive outcomes.
