Feral cats are cats who live outdoors and have had little contact with humans. These cats will not do well in homes due to their lack of socialization.
TNR allows feral cats to be humanely trapped, sterilized, and released back to the outdoor area where they were found. Studies show that TNR programs reduce both the number of feral cats in a community and the nuisance behaviors of these animals.
Ear Tipping is a sign that a cat has been spayed or neutered through a TNR Program.
TNR is now legal in St. Clair County
