Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is fast becoming the preferred approach to managing feral cat populations around the nation. Learn from the experts at Neighborhood Cats why TNR can be the most effective and humane alternative for population control and how you and your organization can be part of a successful program in your community. The morning session will feature presentations on why TNR works where traditional methods have failed, how to set up a communitywide program, hot button issues like wildlife and public health, and ways to find funding for fixing ferals. The afternoon features a training workshop on the actual hands-on work of TNR, including a screening of Neighborhood Cats’ film How to Conduct a Mass Trapping. Other topics covered in the afternoon will include feeding, shelter, equipment, specialized trapping, and building good community relations.

Presenters: Bryan Kortis, Executive Director, Neighborhood Cats, New York, New York; Valerie Sicignano, Director of Program Development, Neighborhood Cats, New York, New York.
