Upon completion of the workshop, you will become a Certified TNR Caretaker and be eligible for free spay/neuter, trap loans, transport of cats and traps, specialty training workshops, community outreach materials, TNR Caretaker Update newsletter, networking opportunities, dedicated NYCFCI help desk, 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.
