What is Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR)?
Trap, neuter, return (TNR) is a nonlethal strategy for reducing the number of outdoor community/feral cats and improving the quality of life for cats, wildlife, and people.
Humanely trapping community cats,
Spaying (females) or neutering (males) them,
Vaccinating against rabies and other diseases,
Surgically removing the tip of one ear, a universally recognized sign that a cat living outside has been spayed or neutered, and
Returning the cats to the location where they were trapped (where they consider to be home).
Low-cost TNR Options
Outdoor community/feral cats should get fixed & returned to where they were found.
For cats in Brazos and surrounding counties, book surgery slots for Aggieland Humane Society's $5/cat Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program - they also rent traps.
For cats in Brazos County, can request vouchers from BCS Spay (especially if need help trapping due to being elderly or disabled). Contribute what you can afford (up to $100/cat).
Do not take feral cats to shelters - they will almost surely be euthanized after a three day hold.
