Become a Certified TNR Caretaker! Attending a TNR certification workshop is the first step you should take to gain the knowledge and skills needed to help the feral and stray community cats in your area. Upon completion of the workshop, you will become a Certified TNR Caretaker and be eligible for free or low-cost spay/neuter, trap loans, transportation for cats and traps, educational and networking events, newsletters, community outreach materials, and other services and support within the five boroughs of New York City provided by the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, the ASPCA, and other area 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 and receive our Guide to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and Colony Care.
