Victoria TNR is private, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the health and living conditions of homeless cats through trapping, neutering/spaying, and returning them to volunteer caretakers. This approach of Trap-Neuter-Return is the most effective and only humane method of containing and reducing a growing population of feral and free-roaming cats.
Catch and kill does not work, yet it continues. Animal control agencies have been catching and killing cats for decades in an unsuccessful attempt to reduce the number of feral and stray cats in a given area. Trap-Neuter-Return does work. There are no more kittens, the population stabilizes, and the returned cats’ lives are improved. Behaviors and stress associated with pregnancy and mating such as yowling, roaming and fighting, stop. Not only does Trap-Neuter-Return make good sense, it is also a responsible, humane method of care for outdoor cats and is less expensive than catch and kill approaches.
Victoria TNR is also the only organization in the Victoria area who rescues free-roaming unweaned kittens, older kittens and cats in distress.
