TRAP NEUTER RETURN
Helping Future Generations of Cats
We now have a facebook group just for our TNR efforts! If you're interested in helping, please join us here.
Trap-Neuter-Return is an extremely important and effective way of preventing the spread and suffering of unwanted cats.
In a Trap-Neuter-Return program, community cats are humanely trapped (with box traps), brought to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, eartipped (the universal sign that a community cat has been neutered and vaccinated), and then returned to their outdoor home [Source - Alley Cat Allies].
PURR is committed to performing TNR in the Philadelphia area to help prevent unwanted cats and to save those already here.
Notice a problem? If you'd like to request TNR at a specific location, please fill out the form here.
