TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) is a proven & humane approach to reducing the number of stray & feral cats over time.
The number of stray & feral cats is staggering. It is a man made problem that requires a community wide commitment to fix. Domestic cats are not native wildlife. Stray cats are cats that have most often been dumped or abandoned. Feral cats are born in the wild but somewhere in their lineage was a dumped or abandoned stray cat.
TNR programs involve volunteers who trap, neuter and return cats to managed colonies with food, water & shelter. Colonies can be small - 4 or 5 cats in residential areas or they can be larger - usually in commercial or agricultural areas.
Hearts to Homes is not a colony caretaker rather we support colony caretakers in Brantford & Brant County by donating food and helping with spays/neuters/vaccines.
