Laurel workshop trains volunteers to reduce feral cat population

Workshop to focus on trap-neuter-return process

August 28, 2012

Ally Cat Allies, the city of Laurel and local volunteers working to reduce the local stray feral cat population are sponsoring a trap-neuter-return workshop Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Laurel Police Department's Partnership Activity Center, 811 Fifth St.

Workshop participants will learn how to safely and humanely trap stray and feral cats to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and returned to their territories in a process known as trap-neuter-return, or TNR.

The workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn how to safely and humanely manage stray and feral cats in their neighborhood. In addition to trapping, organizers said a major focus of the workshop will be on how to work with neighbors to address cat issues, and that individual cat problems will also be discussed.

Participants can join the Laurel volunteer TNR team, which will be performing targeted TNR processes as a means of reducing the feral and stray cat population in specific areas.
