Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR, is the only successful strategy for humanely controlling the population of free-roaming cats.

A sterilized colony of feral cats will stabilize, and eventually decline in numbers through illness, accidents and old age. If you want to reduce the amount of free-roaming cats in your neighborhood, the solution is to maintain a sterilized, managed colony. Trap-and-kill programs do not work. Because of the territorial nature of feral cats, when all the resident cats are removed from an area a “vacuum” is created, and un-neutered cats from nearby neighborhoods will move into this new unclaimed territory. The cities of Berkeley and Oakland endorse the use of TNR to control the population of free-roaming cats in their jurisdictions. Here’s how you can help:
