FieldHaven's TNR Program
Feral Cat vs. Stray Cat.
It's important to know the difference between a feral and a stray cat.
Cats are territorial and form a strong bond with the location they inhabit and for feral cat colonies, this bond is even stronger. They are born there and have learned how to survive in that particular environment. Feral colonies will often run off other feral cats that do not belong to their colony. Therefore, relocation of a feral cat should only be considered in emergency situations (life or death) and requires proper "imprinting" for success.
Benefits of a TNR Program
Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their original location to live out their natural lives with their feral colony. Stray cats and kittens that can be socialized are adopted into loving homes. Other benefits of TNR include:
