TNR saves cats’ lives

Nearly three-quarters of cats who enter our nation’s animal shelters each year are killed. Most are free-roaming community cats.

Trap/neuter/return (TNR) entails trapping, neutering/vaccinating, and returning community cats to their original outdoor locations. It is not only the most humane method of preventing cats from entering the shelter system; it’s the most effective.

TNR also ensures the cats’ health and welfare, and provides a public health benefit to the community.

Best Friends sterilizes, vaccinates and releases tens of thousands of community cats each year, preventing many thousands of births.

Support TNR
and help reduce the number of community cats, and ultimately the number of cats being killed in America’s shelters.
