What is Trap-Neuter-Release?

Trap-Neuter-Release, often referred to as TNR, is the practice of humanely trapping a feral cat, altering, vaccinating for rabies, and ear-tipping it, and releasing it back to its original habitat.

What are the benefits of TNR?

Since feral cats are often unable to be safely placed up for adoption, TNR programs provide a humane alternative to euthanasia by allowing the animal to return to its natural living environment, while preventing overpopulation.

What is ear-tipping?

Ear tipping is the universal sign of a neutered feral cat. The procedure involves removing about ¼ inch off the tip of the ear (typically the left ear) while the cat is anesthetized for spaying/neutering; healing is rapid.  The mark will help prevent unnecessary surgery, confinement, or euthanasia.

What is the difference between a stray and a feral cat?

A stray cat is tame and has become lost or has been abandoned; he/she has been socialized to people at some point in his/her life.  A feral cat has had little contact with humans, is fearful of people and usually lives on his/her own or in a colony outdoors.

How can the Beaver County Humane Society assist with TNR?

Spay/neuter program for your cat.

The Beaver County Humane Society now offers lower cost spay/neuter for cats. Our program is for the friendly, healthy, feline whose owners would prefer to have vaccinations and surgery all in one day. This cost effective program is $70 and includes the surgery, Rabies vaccines, initial FVRCP vaccine, and a microchip. For an additional $25.00 you can also a dose of flea preventative and dewormer.

Your cat will NOT receive an examination by the veterinarian. We recommend a veterinary exam prior to surgery.  

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Karen, our Medical Coordinator, at 724-775-5801 x114 or e-mail medical@beavercountyhumanesociety.org.
