Cats Track: Cutting Edge of Community TNR: Targeted Spay/Neuter
Explore recent trends and developments in community Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs, including the use of targeted spay/neuter to maximize impact on intake and euthanasia rates; return-to-field programs which pull free-roaming cats directly out of shelters and, instead of euthanizing them, release them back into the community; and grassroots education programs designed to mobilize public participation in TNR. Implementing these strategies and funding opportunities will also be discussed.
