TNR Community Outreach & Relations

If you care for a community cat colony, you probably find yourself answering questions and addressing concerns from the community. The NYC Feral Cat Initiative (NYCFCI) provides free training, literature, and other resources to help you educate and build support for Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in your neighborhood and at community meetings. The more your neighbors learn and understand about the cats and responsible colony management — whether they like the cats or not — the better life will be for your colony.
