If you are interested in getting involved with TNR, don’t worry, there are lots of resources to help you get started. Alley Cat Allies has assembled a complete Trap-Neuter-Return guide on their website with guidelines for humane trapping, suggested trapping equipment, and helpful videos.
This excellent video gives an overview of the full trapping process. (If you can’t see the video below, click here to watch it on the site.)
In addition to the online TNR guide, Alley Cat Allies offers a trapping kit for purchase. For $15, this kit includes:
- How to Help Feral Cats: A Step-by-Step Guide to Trap-Neuter-Return
- Alley Cat Allies Educational Video Library which includes Trapping Cats: How to Trap an Entire Colony
- A set of 50 Trap-Neuter-Return for Stray and Feral Cats: The Basics truth cards to help you explain the basics of TNR
- A set of 25 We’re Helping Outdoor Cats doorhangers to announce your next neighborhood trapping.
These resources will give you most of the information you need to get started, but if you have any other questions, the folks at Alley Cat Allies are there to help. You can use their online inquiry form to get more assistance.
Tomorrow, we’ll share other local resources where you can get assistance with and learn more about TNR.
