Becoming a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK. What can you expect to be doing? - Trapping cats using humane methods - Taking the trapped cats to local vets to be neutered - Returning cats to their territory where they were trapped The role might also include: - Regular feeding of feral cat colonies - Promoting neutering by building relationships with farmers, land owners and local businesses - Liaising with vets to promote and arrange neutering
