New Yorkers can gain the knowledge and skills needed to help the feral and stray community cats in their area at a free Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) certification workshop hosted by Bideawee, one of the country’s oldest and most respected animal welfare and pet adoption organizations.
Learn the basics of TNR and colony care in this hands-on workshop designed by Alley Cat Allies, the ASPCA, and the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. In this workshop, you will:
• Learn about feral cats, their history and behavior
• Learn the steps of humane trapping and pre- and post-spay/neuter surgery care with the help of video and live demonstrations
• Practice using a box trap and divider for trapping and in-trap care
• Learn the basics of caring for a cat colony
• Learn how to build good relationships with neighbors throughout the TNR process and how to help the cats be good neighbors
Attendees will become Certified TNR Caretakers in NYC and receive our Guide to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and Colony Care.
