Program 1

TNR

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) helps to keep the feral cat population in and around West Seattle from increasing. Our volunteers safely trap cats and transport them to veterinary clinics where they are spayed or neutered and then released back to the home area. Whenever possible, feral kittens are socialized and adopted out to loving homes.
