Denver Animal Protection, along with several animal welfare community organizations, have launched a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program to help combat the feral cat overpopulation in Denver.
How You Can Help Community Cats
Cats in your community are often feral cats. The difference between pet cats and feral cats is that ferals have had little or no contact with humans & are fearful of people and cannot be adopted. They have a home: the outdoors. There is a simple way you can help community cats: Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
TNR is the only method proven to be humane and effective at controlling feral cat population growth. By using TNR, the feral cats in a colony are trapped, neutered and then returned to their territory where caretakers provide them with regular food and shelter. This program ends reproduction, stabilizes feral cat populations, improves individual cats’ lives, and saves more shelter cats that are unsocial.
