TNR stands for trap, neuter and return. This is a process where feral (not tame) outdoor cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and then returned to live outside under the supervision of a "colony caregiver." The caregiver ensures the cats visit a veterinarian on a regular basis, provides food/water, provides shelter and ensures the overall safety of the cats. TNR is the only, scientifically proven method of managing and reducing the feral cat population worldwide.
