What is TNRM?

Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) is a humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing community stray cat and dog populations. TNRM relies on sterilization of the animals so that they don’t breed.

What We Do

TNRM begins with the trapping of community strays using humane trapping methods. The captured strays are taken to a veterinary clinic where they are sterilized and vaccinated. The sterilized strays are marked so that they can be easily identified, usually by cropping the pointed end of an ear so that it has a square appearance (known as ear tipping) or cutting a notch (V-shape) at the tip or on the side of the ear.

After the animal has recovered from surgery, it is subsequently released to the site of capture. The strays are then managed back in their original environment.

With TNRM, the animals’ reproductive capacities are eliminated, leading to a gradual decline in their numbers. Sterilized animals also benefit in terms of health, with much lower risks of contracting certain diseases and a longer lifespan. Nuisance behaviors such as aggression, territorial marking, etc are also substantially reduced.
