Trap Neuter Return (TNR)

Companion Animals

SPCA supports the use of managed and targeted Trap-Neuter-Return methods to control populations of stray cats, providing it is carried out according to best practice guidelines.

Managed and targeted TNR should be carried out in partnership with the local community.

SPCA does not support managed targeted trap-neuter-return programmes in ecologically sensitive areas where cats pose a significant risk to native wildlife.
