What is T.N.R. ?

Each year in the US, millions of kittens are born to free-roaming, community cats. The majority of these cats are not socialized to humans and cannot be brought indoors as family pets. The most effective method of controlling the population of community cats is Trap, Neuter, and Return (known as TNR). Free-roaming cats are trapped using humane traps. They are taken to a veterinary clinic where they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, and treated for fleas/ticks. They receive pain medication and are held for a short period of time to ensure they are eating and have recovered well. They are then returned to the same outdoor location in which they were trapped. These cats also have a small portion of their left ear removed while under anesthesia. This is called an "Ear Tip". It is a way of indicating to persons in the community that the cat has been through the TNR program and will no longer be contributing to the over-population of cats in the area. 

While saving orphaned kittens is a large part of our rescue's mission, an equally important aspect is ensuring that the free-roaming cats in our community are not continuing to produce litter after litter, season after season.

We Are Here to Help!

Rock Star Animal Rescue, based in Northampton Borough, is eager to help

community cat caregivers get their neighborhood cats neutered & vaccinated! 

  • We have plenty of humane TruCatch cat traps that we lend out to residents. We ask a $25 deposit per trap, which will be refunded upon return of our trap, clean & in good condition.

  • We would be happy to discuss your individual situation and help you create a trapping plan well in advance of your neuter appointments.

  • Our traps are very easy to set up and we can show you tips and tricks to be successful in trapping. We have all the equipment you will need!

  • After surgery, cats will need to recover for 1-3 days in a temperature-controlled, indoor area before it is safe to release them back to their outdoor home. The cats will remain in their trap during this time. We can provide you with supplies & materials to help during the recovery period.

What we are not able to do:

  • Due to our busy work & kitten fostering schedule, we are not able to physically come to your location and do the trapping ourselves. We are happy to guide & support you through the entire process.

  • We do not trap cats in order for them to be re-located elsewhere.

  • We cannot trap cats on an uncooperative neighbor's property.

  • We are unable to take in adult cats for re-homing. We are only able to accept orphaned, neonatal kittens under 6 weeks of age into our rescue, as space & time allows.
