A humane, non-lethal alternative


Black and White Kitten

Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return is the humane and effective approach for outdoor and community cats. Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that TNVR improves the lives of outdoor cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the population over time.


Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting.

It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their original home location.

Grounded in science, TNVR stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction. It is a fact that the removal and killing of outdoor cats that animal control has been pursuing for decades is never-ending and futile.


It is time to put an end to catch and kill. Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return provides a life-saving, effective solution for these beautiful, independent cats.
