Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) - WHY
TNR is the heart of our work to reduce cat overpopulation.
A female cat can become pregnant as young as four months and can bear three litters a year. That's about 2900 cats in five years. Or would be if more than one in four survived - 75% of all cats born in the wild die from predators, starvation or illness. (source)
TNR is a proven solution for reducing feral colonies and the overall feral population.
TNR stabilizes the colony population humanely, improves the cats’ lives, saves taxpayer dollars, addresses neighbors’ concerns, and helps the entire community reach a solution that benefits everyone. (Alley Cat Allies - read more information from them here.)
The FCPGA does not go onto properties to trap cats, but we can lend you traps, help you with lots of information, and supply low/no cost spay/neuter vouchers. There's more information on our TNR-HOW webpage here.
Or contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on our FB page and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
You can make a difference!
