“TNR is the only proven method to decrease the number of cats humanely and dramatically over time,” said ARL’s CEO Ashley Mikulsky. “We are excited to resume our TNR clinic operations and continue targeting the community cat overpopulation in our county. After closing the clinic last summer to focus on the surgeries of the pets already at the shelter, resuming this service was our priority.”

The cost of TNR surgery at the ARL remains accessible at $50 for both male and female cats. For the safety and well-being of all cats, it is mandatory that they arrive in a trap. To facilitate this requirement, traps are available for rent through the ARL’s Adoptions Department.

Each cat undergoing TNR surgery at the ARL will receive comprehensive care without exceptions, including: Spay/Neuter Surgery, Rabies Vaccination, FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia Vaccine), 72-hour pain injection, Ear tip (left ear corner will be cut as a TNR identification mark), Microchip with the address where they were trapped.
