You already know the scenario. Prowling near virtually every convenience store and dumpster, and in many backyards, are wild (feral) cats. Your city gets dozens, maybe hundreds, of complaints a years. Many more citizens don't call at all because they don't want cats killed. Meanwhile, the feral cat population grows.

You'll find The Humane Solution invaluable because it outlines a cost-saving, nonlethal solution called trap-neuter-return (TNR) that's working for communities nationwide. TNR means that feral cats are trapped, neutered, and vaccinated at a veterinary facility, then returned to their home environment.

The Humane Solution documents the success of TNR in cities large and small. If you're new to TNR, you'll learn how it works and why. if you're already considering TNR, you'll get some ideas for how to make it work in your community.

When you're ready for a pilot program, contact Alley Cat Allies, the national feral cat resource. Alley Cat Allies can help you design a low-cost animal control alternative.
