Today is Feral Cat Day! In honor of our feral feline friends, we wanted to highlight some of our local TNR programs.
TNR stands for Trap-Neuter-Release or Trap-Neuter-Return. Sometimes, feral cats cannot be homed. TNR programs provide a humane and effective approach to helping to control the feral cat population. There also are Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) programs that administer rabies and FVRCP vaccines. TNR programs provide more than just a way to stabilize a cat colony. They also help take off the added stress of mating & pregnancy, improve physical health and reduce mating behaviors that humans find disruptive (yowling, spraying).
If you ever see a cat with a tipped ear they most likely have been part of a TNR program. What are some rescues in our area that are participating in TNR programs?
