TNR Workshops & Events in NYC

These workshops and events are presented to engage, educate, and support colony caretakers and the public on feral and stray community cat issues and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in the New York City area.

TNR Certification Workshops

Attending a TNR certification workshop is the first step you should take to gain the knowledge and skills needed to help the feral and stray community cats in your area. Upon completion of the workshop, you will become a Certified TNR Caretaker and be eligible for free or low-cost spay/neuter, trap loans, transportation for cats and traps, educational and networking events, newsletters, community outreach materials, and other services and support within the five boroughs of New York City provided by the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, the ASPCA, and other area organizations.

TNR Specialty Training Workshops

In addition to becoming a Certified TNR Caretaker, we encourage those interested in helping feral and stray community cats to attend workshops giving in-depth instruction on various specialties related to TNR and the care of feral and stray community cats and kittens. Topics include Bottle-Feeding & Care of Orphaned Kittens; Taming Feral Kittens for Adoption; Enhancing Neighborhood Relations Surrounding Community Cats; Cruelty and Cats; Infection Control; Late-Term Spay; Building Shelters for Outdoor Cats; Why It is Good to Be a 501(c)(3) Organization; and Planning for Your Cats When You're No Longer Around.
