Trap Neuter Return TNR is a COMMUNITY based program, meaning that people who feed outside cats, also known as caretakers, trap the cats they are feeding and bring them to a surgery clinic. Cats are done the same day and the caretakers take them home to recover in the traps: 48 hours for females and 18-24 hours for males. The goal of TNR is to stabilize the size of the colony, all cats get a rabies vaccine, parasite treatments, pain medicine and they are returned to live in their home territory.
DO NOT TRAP until you have a plan: appointment/s and payment. NNN surgery services for community cats are by appointment only. There is no walk in available.
NNN has loaner traps at each clinic location when you have an appointment: $25 refundable deposit per trap to be used at our surgery clinics. We do not loan out traps to be used at other surgery clinics.
Financial assistance may be available. Check the Financial resources page for more information.
Volunteers to assist in trapping may be available if you are elderly or disabled or have no transportation. Not every area or community has volunteer trappers. Email our contact page if you have questions. email@example.com
DO NOT TRAP A CAT UNLESS YOU HAVE A CLINIC TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT DAY. APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED.
