TNR (Trap Neuter Return) es el enfoque humano y efectivo para gatos callejeros y salvajes. Ahora en la práctica durante décadas en los EE. UU. Después de ser probado en Europa, los estudios científicos demostraron que TNR mejora la vida de los gatos salvajes, mejora sus relaciones con las personas que viven cerca de ellos y el tamaño de las colonias con el tiempo.

What Is Trap-Neuter-Return?

Trap-Neuter-Return is the only humane and effective approach to community cat populations. Here are the three basic steps to this lifesaving process:

1. Trap: Humanely trap all the cats in a colony. A colony is a group of cats living outdoors together.

2. Neuter (or spay): Take the cats in their traps to a veterinarian or clinic to be neutered, vaccinated, and eartipped (the universal symbol of a neutered and vaccinated cat. Learn more at alleycat.org/Eartip).

3. Return: After the cats recover, return them to their outdoor home where they were trapped.

Las colonias que participan en TNR disminuyen de tamaño con el tiempo. TNR estabiliza rápidamente las poblaciones de gatos salvajes al terminar instantáneamente la reproducción y al eliminar los gatos socializados de la colonia.
