Our Mission

To improve the lives of the millions of cats living on our streets and support the compassionate people caring for them. 

What is TNR?

Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR, is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral and stray cats. The cats are trapped, spayed and neutered, vaccinated and then returned to their outdoor homes. Caretakers provide food and shelter and monitor the cats. Learn more.

Back in 1999, there were no services for feral cats in New York City. Co-founder Bryan Kortis explains how Neighborhood Cats changed that.
