Amazing Residents Doing TNR on 99th Street

 

 

 

The Toby Project recognized some women in our area for their fantastic work!

 

 

Some residents saw that 99th Street had a large cat population. They decided to do a TNR Project there.  (TNR stands for Trap, Neuter and Release).  They were able to have 14 cats spayed/neutered through the Toby Project, which does low-cost neutering for community cats.

 

 

 

 

When there are a lot of cats in a community, the best thing anyone can do is to have them neutered, so that the colony doesn’t keep growing.  After they are neutered and cared for, they are brought back to the block where they came from (although sometimes people adopt them too).  

 

 

 

This amazing group of people saw a problem, fund-raised, informed the community and took care of a growing feral cat issue in Bay Ridge. See more pics here. This was a lot of work!  Thank you! These are the people who make this neighborhood great because they care!  

 

 

You will know that a cat has been part of a TNR Project because one of their ears will be tipped (missing the edge).

If you would like to help this group, get TNR Certified. There will be a TNR certification in Bay Ridge in September (no details yet) and there is a free course online (it’s 90 minutes long) . After you are certified, contact Marybeth or Sonia
