Help Homeless Cats and Prevent Unwanted Litters of Kittens This Fall with Trap-Neuter-Return

Anywhere, USA (August 24, 2023) Community Cats Podcast, in partnership with Neighborhood Cats, will hold its popular Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Certification Workshop on Saturday, September 9, from 2 – 4:30 p.m. ET.

This online workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to help outdoor cats and kittens – and prevent more unwanted litters from entering animal shelters! From animal control to the general public, anyone with a passion for helping cats and kittens is encouraged to register and learn from trappers who have been in the field for more than 20 years.

The workshop covers best practices for TNR and colony management, including all planning and preparations for successful trapping, and how to help outdoor cats through the cold winter months. There will also be time for questions from attendees, which will be answered in real time by the experts from Neighborhood Cats. Bring your toughest questions!

All attendees will receive a certificate after taking a short quiz and gain access to an exclusive Facebook group to continue networking with other caregivers. Attendees will also receive extensive handouts, including the TNR Handbook by Neighborhood Cats.

The TNR Certification Workshop has been endorsed by the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA), and continuing education credits are available for animal control professionals who attend.

Session duration is 2.5 hours followed by optional 15-minute Q&A. Registration is $10 and includes access to the recorded session, handouts, and certificate, as well as access to a Facebook discussion group exclusively for trappers and folks actively engaged in community cat programs.

More information about the webinar is available here. The TNR Certification Workshop is offered monthly. Anyone interested in attending can register at www.communitycatspodcast.com/GetTNRCertified.

Individualized training opportunities for organizations are available upon request. Interested parties should email Stacy LeBaron at [email protected] to learn more about collaborating with Community Cats Podcast.

Neighborhood Cats helps caretakers, animal shelters, and every day community members help outdoor cats. Their team extends from New York City to Maui. They regularly lead workshops to help anyone learn how to TNR and maximize their life saving through mass trapping and targeting. The webinar will be led by Bryan Kortis, National Programs Director, and Susan Richmond, Executive Director. For more information about Neighborhood Cats, visit neighborhoodcats.org.

September 16 – Return-to-Field: How Shelters Save Community Cats

Cost: FREE | Learn more and register here!

It used to be that a feral cat had little chance of exiting a shelter alive after he entered.  But that’s no longer the case.  In recent years, more and more shelters have adopted Return-to-Field (RTF) programs.  Instead of euthanizing healthy community cats (whether feral, friendly or otherwise), the shelter will spay or neuter, eartip and vaccinate, then return the cat back to where he was found. We’ll cover the policies behind RTF, the mechanics of implementing the program, current controversies over the RTF of friendly cats, and how to combine RTF with TNR in general to lower cat populations and create sustainability.

I subscribe to a variety of reading lists to constantly further my knowledge of health and welfare for cats and other pets, domestic animals and wildlife. I occasionally publish press releases I think my readers will appreciate, and I share them by choice with no compensation. When I am occasionally compensated for a post I clearly note that is a “sponsored post”.
