Trap - Neuter - Release (TNR)
St. Clair County Fact Sheet

 

 

 

 
Feral Cats are cats who live outdoors and have had little contact with humans. These cats will not do well in homes due to their lack of socialization.
 
Feral kittens are better off with their mother than in a shelter. If the kittens are alone, it is likely that their mother is out hunting for food. If you are unsure about what you should do, please call us for advice. 
 
TNR allows feral cats to be humanely trapped, sterilized, and released back to the outdoor area where they were found. Studies show that TNR programs reduce both the number of feral cats in a community and the nuisance behaviors of these anumals.

Ear Tipping is a sign that a cat has been spayed or neutered through a TNR Program.
 
TNR is now legal in St. Clair County
