    Are you considering launching, or have recently launched, a RTF/SNR/TNR program and are now dealing with an onslaught of questions and/or pushback from your community about why you're putting cats/kittens back where they came from? Are you being accused of abandonment? Wreaking havoc on the environment, birds, gardens, peace AND quiet? Although it may not feel like it at times, you and your community share the same goal. Whether you identify as an animal welfare professional, a bird lover, someone who just wants these cats out of your yard, or all of the above, we're all here for the most effective, sustainable way to reduce the number of cats living outside. Our challenge lies in communicating the benefits of a proven strategy that can often seem counterintuitive to those new to feline management.

    • Maddie's® Director of Feline Lifesaving, Monica Frenden
    • HSUS Senior Analyst, Cat Protection & Policy, Danielle Bays
    • Executive Director of Stray Cat Alliance, Christi Metropole
    These experts will give answers to the top ten questions you receive about TNR, SNR, returning cats, and let us know how to message community cat program alignment with our universally-held goal of managing feline populations.
