Feral, stray, and "Community Cats" are an issue that is constantly brought up among animal welfare organizations. Often there is a battle among different groups on how best to deal with the "problem" some people claim these cats cause to their environment. The only proven effective method of helping to stabilize the population of these cats is through a program call TNR. TNR stands for "Trap/Neuter/Return". It is a program where cats are humanely trapped, brought to a clinic to be altered, get basic vaccinations, and then are returned to the area that they were trapped from. Often a colony of cats is cared for by one or two people. They provide food and, in some cases, shelters for the cats. By performing TNR in a colony, we are able to better stabilize the population numbers in the colony by preventing many litters of kittens from being born and keeping new cats from encroaching on the colony. While no program is 100% perfect in dealing with Feral Cats, we feel that TNR is the most effective one that is currently out there. The Pet Pantry is happy to provide the TNR service to the community and will be looking to expand our services in this area in the near future. Please check back to this page often for updates on when the next clinics will be.
