Stray and Feral Cats in NYC: A TNR Workshop
Taught by Neighborhood Cats
Neighborhood Cats is a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charity. Using the method known as Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), their mission is to improve the lives of the millions of cats living on our streets and support the compassionate people caring for them.
Workshop attendees become TNR certified, making them eligible for free and low cost spay/neuter/vaccination services.
If you've ever tossed a slice of turkey to a street cat or fed a stray in your backyard, this workshop is for you!
Curious about what's going on with that group of outdoor cats down the block? What's the difference between a stray and feral cat? When and why is "kitten season," and what can you do to help?
Learn about the lives of stray and feral cats, and how to help keep them happy and healthy, along with meeting others in your area who are interested in the very same thing. Our expert instructors will teach you best practices in colony management techniques and Trap-Neuter-Return, the NYC-sanctioned technique for managing cat populations.
Trap-Neuter-Return is a humane approach to managing community cats - the cats are trapped, brought to a veternarian to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated, and then returned back to their homes. If you've ever seen a cat missing the tip of one of its ears, that's the universal sign of a TNR'd cat! No more breeding, no more fighting, no more spraying. Everyone's happier!
Workshop attendees become TNR certified, making them eligible for free and low cost services like spay/neuter, trap rentals and expert assistance. Are you ready to be part of the solution for feral and stray cats in your neighborhood?
