Submit Your NYC-Area Managed TNR Colony Locations

The NYC Feral Cat Initiative, a program of Bideawee, requests that Certified TNR Caretakers submit the locations of the community cat colony/colonies they manage in New York City.

Your managed colony data are vital. This information will help us allocate our resources and understand the areas with the greatest need for assistance in order to best accommodate the NYC TNR community. Gathering this information will result in significant and highly persuasive data, and it allows us to facilitate positive outcomes for managed colonies when issues arise with property owners, elected officials, or city agencies. It also enables us to reach out to nearby caretakers who might be able to offer assistance in finding missing colony cats or in other situations where local help is needed.

Submitting the locations of your managed colonies can also help save the lives of your cats should they be trapped and brought to an Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) shelter. As you know, alerts go out when an eartipped cat arrives at ACC. If we have the names and current contact information of caretakers in the area where a cat was trapped, we can help reunite that displaced cat with his/her caretaker and home.

Help us help you! Please take a few minutes to complete this quick but very important survey. As few as one or two cats in your back yard count just as much as a large colony, so please be as inclusive as possible!

You are not required to keep your colony information current, but you may submit updates if there have been changes in your population.

Your colony location(s) will be kept strictly confidential.

Important Note: This collection of information is independent of any colony information you may submit to Neighborhood Cats' Cat Stats NYC database. You should continue to update your Cat Stats NYC records.
