Trap-Neuter-Return, commonly referred to as TNR, is a humane method of managing and reducing feral cat populations. In this process, feral cats are humanely trapped, transported to a veterinarian for evaluation, vaccination, ear tipping, and sterilization (spay/neuter) , then returned to their colony. Ear tipping, the practice of cropping the pointed end of the ear, is used to identify feral cats who have been sterilized.
