Collarless Doesn’t Mean Worthless: Why It’s in Your Best Interest to Start a Shelter-Based TNR Program for Feral Cats
Presenter: Becky Robinson, National Director, Alley Cat Allies, Bethesda, MD;
Karen Bird, Supervisor, West Valley City Animal Services, West Valley City, UT; and Holly Sizemore, Feral Fix Program Director~ No More Homeless Pets, Kanab, UT
Discuss the ways a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program is more effective in addressing the feral cat problem than sporadic trap-and-kill policies, and how it demonstrates that conimunity acceptance of TNR offers benefits in time, money, staff responsibilities, and reduced liabilities. Learn how animal control agencies and shelters can make a transition from their current policies to a TNR program with educational resources that will help your staff adjust to new policies and new challenges.
