|The McKamey Animal Center offers a Trap, Neuter and Return program to the City of Chattanooga residents. This program is designed to assist residents with controlling the feral cat population in our local area. TNR allows caretakers to trap feral cats, alter them, and release them back into the “wild” the following day. As the city animal shelter, it is our duty to help support population control and save lives. Studies have shown that programs like this will help control the feral cat population over time.

|“In the United States, we have been accustomed to the idea that the best thing for an unwanted cat is to be surrendered to a shelter. When the shelter is reasonably sure of finding the cat an adoptive home or providing it with lifelong humane care, this is certainly the case. However, we now recognize that admitting more healthy cats than can be released alive over time does not necessarily serve cats, communities or shelters well.” – Kate Hurley DVM, MPVM, Koret Shelter Medicine Program, U.C.
