Trap Neuter and Return
"Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.

Drop trapping! We use this when the cats become too wise for regular traps.
Attempting to trap some kittens!!
Kitty trapped, next step spayed or neutered!!
Ear tips! This is how you identify who has been altered or not!
Release time! Home sweet home for the cats!
Another one, already TNR'd but needed medical attention!
"Trapping cats and bringing them to HSSV to be spayed or neutered means they can no longer have kittens and unwanted behaviors such as yowling, fighting and spraying are dramatically reduced. And unlike traditional "trap and kill" practices, by returning spayed and neutered cats back to their outdoor home keeps new unspayed/unneutered cats from moving in and repopulating the neighborhood.”
