What is the Trap-Neuter-Return Program?

In order to decrease stray and feral cat populations without harming the cats, Grand Prairie Animal Services and volunteers coordinate a free feral cat fix program called "Trap-Neuter-Return" (TNR). The program is funded by a grant from the Petco Foundation.

The TNR program involves (1) trapping all or most of the cats in a colony, (2) getting them sterilized and (3) releasing them. Cats returned to the wild are tipped on the left ear to identify them as sterilized.

How does Trap-Neuter-Return help the community?

Once fixed, these cats will be better neighbors. They will not be as likely to engage in problem behaviors like yowling, fighting, or spraying. Best of all, they will not be reproducing and increasing the number of homeless cats.

TNR is supported by numerous cities and counties as the only proven way to effectively control feral cat population growth.
