Neighborhood Cats TNR Certification Workshop


Are you ready to be part of the solution for feral and stray cats? In this virtual course presented by Neighborhood Cats and hosted by The Community Cats Podcast, learn what TNR is, why it works, and how to get started. Our expert instructors will teach you best practices for Trap-Neuter-Return and colony management. We'll cover getting along with neighbors, preparations for trapping, trapping itself (including entire colonies at once), feeding, winter shelter and more. Take advantage of the interactive format, extensive handouts and video footage of actual projects.

Attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance.  New York City residents will qualify for assistance with scheduling discount spay/neuter, and for free TNR services, including trap rentals and expert guidance and hands-on help.

NOTE: Free spay/neuter from the ASPCA is available only to NYC residents who had a rescuer account on the ASPCA platform as of 9/13/2021.  No new accounts are being accepted at this time.  Please also note that because of the pandemic and a shortage of veterinarians, discount spay/neuter appointments are in limited supply. Neighborhood Cats will assist those who have attended the workshop in finding appointments to the best of our ability.
