Outdoor, free-roaming cats are often as well supported, fed and sheltered by community caregivers as the average indoor cat; therefore, are not in distress and should not be taken to pounds or shelters. Community cats are often afraid of humans and cannot easily be adopted, running the risk of being euthanized in shelters.
TNR supports the health of outdoor free-roaming cats, while allowing them to thrive in their preferred environment. If community cats are removed, resources are often still available, so new cats will move into the vacant territory and continue the cycle – making the return of altered cats a more sustainable and cost effective solution.
