Why Trap - Neuter + Release?
The most common complaints about cats include fighting, yowling and spraying. Spaying and neutering the cats results in reducing these behaviors, usually within about 30 days. The treated cats are normally healthier and the number of cats in the area should stabilize and gradually reduce through attrition. Removing the cats does not work. Typically, this just results in other cats moving into the vacant territory.
TNR of Warren has found that stabilizing the colony through sterilization is the better solution.
Some Cat Facts:
Feral cats are abandoned, dumped, or lost, domestic cats that have reverted to the wild to survive. Offspring of these are born feral.
Every spayed, or neutered, cat makes a huge difference. In seven years, one female cat, and her offspring, yield thousands of kittens. A breeding female can have 3-4 litters per year.
Spayed or Neutered cats do NOT:
Roam - Spray - Fight - Breed or Spread Diseases
Approximately 7-10 million adoptable cats, and dogs, are killed at U.S. shelters every year because there aren't enough loving homes to go around. Roughly twice as many cats, than dogs, make up this figure. This pet overpopulation crisis is the direct result of animals left unaltered in our communities. The ONLY humane, scientifically proven & effective way of addressing the overpopulation crisis is through spay and neuter surgery.
Keep other cats from entering their territory. Destroy mice, rats and snakes. Once they have been spayed/neutered, they are very beneficial and peaceful animals; normally only coming out at night. These sweet cats deserve a decent, good life with a reliable food source. They are the victims of irresponsible human beings; they just need a chance.
Spay and neuter programs are a fundamental part of any effective animal control program. These programs not only reduce numerous surplus animal births, but also lower the costs of animal control services, hence saving taxpayers money.
