TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return)
Throughout the year, our volunteers carried out TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) work in 7 locations across our area and facilitated the neutering of over 40 cats and kittens!! How awesome is that!! Once neutered, these cats have either been returned or relocated to a farm where they can be looked after.
Did you know that one unneutered female cat can be responsible for 20,000 descendants in just five years?! That's why TNR work is crucial to control the population of feral colonies. Neutering is not only beneficial to an individual cat in terms of better health but also to their colonies and the cat population as a whole.
If we do not tackle the neutering of feral cats, we will never get the UK's cat population to a stable level where all cats can have a good quality of life in an appropriate environment.
Here is one of our awesome volunteers feeding one of these feral colonies this year whilst we carry out our TNR work.
