Trap-neuter-Return (TNR) is fast becoming the preferred approach for controlling and reducing feral cat populations. This webinar focuses on ways to make the implementation of TNR more effective in terms of advocacy, colony management and setting up community-wide programs.

Persuasive policy presentations by TNR advocates to municipal officials require an intimate understanding of why TNR works where other methods fail. The theory and underlying factors in favor of TNR will thus be explored in detail. On the colony level, the mass trapping technique pioneered by Neighborhood Cats, which allows for rapid improvement of conditions in previously unmanaged colonies, will be described. Finally, the critical elements for putting together a successful community-wide TNR program will also be presented.
