Trap Neuter Return
Endorsed by the RSPCA
Strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations
TNR is endorsed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ( RSPCA) as “the most humane, effective and financially sustainable strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations” and “the only proven humane and effective method to manage feral cat colonies.
The EU has also endorsed “community-based Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs with on-going responsible management as the most viable, long-term approach to reduce feral cat populations.
The Cats Protection UK is another supporter of TNR understanding that the care of feral cats “is society’s responsibility” as their wild nature is the result of human neglect . Also the U.K.’s Blue Cross supports “trapping and neutering of feral cats where local charities have the capacity to do so..
Once a cat has been trapped and neutered we clip the top of the left ear so that the cat can be easily identified and not accidently trapped again. This is done under anesthetic and does not affect the cat in any way..
