We believe in Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) which stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives. It is a fact that the removal and killing of outdoor cats – which animal control has been pursuing for decades – is never ending and futile while TNR achieves better results and it is much less cruel.
After their sterilisation and recovery, cats are returned to the location where they were trapped, usually to the person who found them or their regular feeder. The cats get their left ear tipped which is the surgical removing of a small portion of the cats ear while under anesthesia for sterilisation. This is an universally accepted way to signify the cat has been sterilised.
Additionally we get them microchipped. If they get caught and sent in to SPCA or AVS they are able to read the microchip and the cat can be bailed out and returned to the feeder.
