How TNR Works: Trap-Neuter-Return is a humane method of feral cat management. All of the cats in an area are trapped, friendly adults and kittens who can be socialized are removed for fostering and adoption, and the remaining adults are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their habitat for lifelong care. TNR is effective because it reduces feral cat numbers right away by removing kittens and friendly adults and because it stops the cycle of reproduction. Neutering also stops most nuisance behaviors, such as spraying, fighting, roaming, and caterwauling. TNR is affordable because low-cost spay/neuter clinics perform the neuters and vaccinations as steeply discounted prices. TNR is approved by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Morris County, the National Animal Control Association, the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, the NJSPCA, and many other agencies and organizations.
The Mt. Olive TNR Project: The Mt. Olive TNR Project consists of residents who volunteer their time. The Project's volunteers do all aspects of the TNR Project, from outreach to trapping, transport, post-operative care, long-term oversight of cats and caregivers, and fostering and adoptions. We arrange for and have cats neutered, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, ear tipped for identification (the universal sign of a TNR'd cat, where the tip of the left ear is removed during the neuter surgery), and micro chipped.
