Four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/Neuter and Humane Animal Trap Loan Program (TNR) is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. A solution is possible and starts with each of us taking one small step: getting our own pets fixed. By considering adopting your next pet from an animal shelter, you are helping stop pet overpopulation.

Trap Neuter Return
Do you have feral cats in your neighborhood and wondering what you can to do to help them? Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the method of humanely trapping feral cats, having them spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and then returning them to their colony to live out their lives. TNR also involves a colony caretaker who provides food, adequate shelter and monitors the cats’ health.
