How TNR Works

TNR or Trap/Neuter/Return

is a planned, humane program for bringing feral cats to a local clinic for spay or neutering, the ear is tipped during surgery (the universal symbol of an altered feline). After recovery, the cats are returned to where they were trapped for release.

TNR offers these cats a healthier life in the wild.

How TNR Helps

Cats coming into the CPHS Shelter have dropped by 1,378 or 53% since 2011. With all other operations at the Shelter being the same, we attribute this successful decrease to the TNR program.
