The Neighborhood Cats TNR Workshop
Come learn how to care for the feral and stray cats in your community and make use of the many resources now available to assist you. All steps in setting up a managed colony will be covered, including establishing good community relations, feeding, building and placing shelters, arranging vet care, finding recovery space, safely handling feral cats, and trapping (with an emphasis on conducting a mass-trapping of an entire feral colony at once). All workshop attendees will become Certified TNR Caretakers, and NYC residents will gain access to free or low-cost spay/neuter, trap rental, transportation for cats and traps, and more. Join the 5,000+ caretakers trained to date!
All workshops begin promptly — please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start time!
