Trap/neuter/return is a humane, non-lethal alternative to the trap-and-kill method of controlling cat populations. Trap/neuter/return (TNR) is a management technique in which homeless, free-roaming (community) cats are humanely trapped, evaluated and sterilized by a licensed veterinarian, vaccinated against rabies, and then returned to their original habitat.
