Learn about Trap Neuter Return (TNR)

Trap Neuter Return (TNR) is the nonlethal, humane practice of capturing and spaying/neutering feral cats, then returning them to their colony. Volunteers, cat colony caretakers and high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinics manage TNR programs. Some organizations, such as IndyFeralAnimal Friends Humane SocietyOARUCAN and Whistle Stop, have traps available to borrow or purchase.

What is Ear Tipping?

During spay/neuter, veterinarians painlessly tip the left ear of feral cats that will return to their colony. Ear tipping identifies cats that have already been spayed/neutered, which helps TNR efforts and tells animal control the cat is cared for.
