Learn about Trap Neuter Return (TNR)

Trap Neuter Return (TNR) is the nonlethal, humane practice of capturing and spaying/neutering 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 Society, OAR, UCAN 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.
