Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the most humane and effective method available to end the severe feral and stray cat overpopulation crisis in China.
We just recently caught a 'community cat' after it made itself comfortable in our back yard. We took it to the vets and had it neutered.

What is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)?

  • TNR involves the trapping of feral or stray cats, getting them neutered, vaccinated for rabies and ear-tipped for identification
  • After the cats have recovered from their surgeries, they are returned to their original sites where caretakers provide food and water and monitor for any new cats
  • TNR is the only effective method proven to successfully reduce the cat’s numbers over the long term. Efforts to simply “Trap-and-Kill” have historically failed
  • TNR provides a humane and life-affirming method to control the population of our community’s feral and stray cats

What are the advantages of TNR?

At the cat colony level:

  • Population control (no more kittens)
  • Dramatically reduced noise (from fighting and mating) and odor (from un-neutered males spraying)
  • Continued rodent control
  • Improved community relations

At the community level:

  • Lower cat intake and euthanasia rates for local shelters
  • Cost savings for animal control from volunteer workforce
  • Improved public image for animal control
