Q: What does TNR stand for?

A: TNR stands for Trap-Neuter-Return.  Feral cats are trapped so they can neutered.  Those that are friendly are adopted.  Those who aren’t able to be adopted are returned to the area they came from.  Breeding ends as does the fighting and disease spread caused by intact cats.
