The NYC Feral Cat Initiative (NYCFCI), a program of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, supports the efforts of organizations and individuals who work to help stray and feral cats — collectively known as “community cats” — and perform Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in New York City. Our goal is to humanely reduce the population of community cats in NYC.
The NYCFCI’s support services include:
Most community cats are not socialized to humans and are not suited for adoption. TNR is the most humane and effective approach to reducing their population and ensuring good quality of life.
Anyone who cares about community cats can get involved in helping them. The NYCFCI offers free training workshops and networking opportunities to help you help the cats.
During Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), friendly stray cats and feral-born kittens young enough to be socialized are removed from colonies for adoption placement in indoor, forever homes.
