Brooklyn Animal Action

Rescuing and Rehoming Animals in Need in New York City

TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return)

What is TNR?

Hundreds of thousands of stray cats live on Brooklyn’s streets. Some are friendly, but others have been on their own too long to go back to living with humans. They live in colonies, surviving as best they can. In the past, these unadoptable animals would often be caught and killed. But that’s not only cruel, it simply doesn’t work: more cats arrive to fill up the vacuum. So what can be done?

More and more municipalities, including New York, now endorse “Trap, Neuter, Return,” or TNR. Neighborhood volunteers, aided by animal rescue organizations, trap the cats in a colony and have them neutered or spayed. They are then “eartipped” – the tip of one ear removed painlessly – for identification as part of a TNR colony. Young kittens and friendly animals are adopted out. The rest are returned to wherever they were found – often a backyard, building courtyard, park or alleyway. Volunteers “manage” the colony, ensuring that the cats are regularly fed and warm shelters provided. Because they are not reproducing, the colony will eventually reduce naturally.

Get Involved!

TNR works, but it depends on the efforts of volunteers. Brooklyn Animal Action members are involved in TNR work around Brooklyn.

If you would like a fun way to inform people about the benefits of TNR, we encourage you to pass out these illustrated flyers. PLEASE NOTE that these are intended to be printed together, as one double-sided flyer. (It’s best to avoid handing out the “Hate Cats”?” flyer alone – we wouldn’t want to promote hatred of cats without a positive counterpart!)

  • BAA Love Cats? Flyer – intended for those who love cats, feed strays, or wish they could do something more to help the feral cats in their neighborhood
  • BAA Hate Cats? Flyer – intended for anyone you know who complains about the feral cats in their neighborhood

We’ve also created a textual flyer that describes the problem of feral cats, and explains how TNR helps both the cats and the communities they live in: Feral Cats Flyer

  • Post-tofurkey//🍗🍁Khaleesi Has the Cutest Tummy's Story... Rescued from Industry City in Sunset Park with her siblings a few months ago, this gorgeous girl is Khaleesi, currently searching for her forever home. She has the absolute cutest spots on her tummy—so how can you resist her? A brown tabby with stunning markings, Khaleesi loves to play with her foster brother and, like all young kittens, must be adopted with another kitty or go to a home with a playful cat to be her new best friend. Khaleesi may take a little time to trust new people, but once she does, she purrs so loudly you can hardly believe it, and really enjoys petting time. She’ll also roll over onto her back and show off those adorable tummy spots, and that’s how you know she’s comfy-cozy with you. Khaleesi tested negative for FeLV/FIV and is up to date on vaccines. She will be spayed when she is old enough. If you’d like to meet Khaleesi, contact Tara Green at catsbkny@gmail.com! 🍁

  • GEORGE ❤️'s HUGS! // George Loves Hugs's Story... George is an amazing cat. He is the nicest guy, loves petting, loves attention and loves to be held. He really is not only a fabulous survivor, but an absolute angel. Everyone who meets him totally falls for him. He gets along fine with other cats and is simply very easy going. One would never know that he was in truly one of the most shocking cases of abuse and neglect we have ever seen (if you want to see what he looked like then, we can send you pics). We know he was a house cat who was tossed out of the house because when we went to pick him up off the street, emaciated, weighing only 5.7lbs and badly injured, a woman came up to us and said, "My baby, Jaguar!" We asked if this was her cat and she said he had been but she put him out. We asked why but she wouldn't give an answer. Further, we couldn't understand how anyone who professed to care about an animal could let him suffer on the street the way he was clearly suffering. We renamed him so he w...

Further, we couldn't understand how anyone who professed to care about an animal could let him suffer on the street the way he was clearly suffering. We renamed him so he would have a new start, took him to the vet where he had to have extensive surgery and we have been caring for him ever since while he has recovered. He is finally doing quite well as you can see from his beautiful face, though his left eye and side of his face is slightly altered from what he went through.

Because of all he has been through, George now eats a particular diet to help his digestive system as he may have IBD. He is doing great on this though and now takes a little bit of steroid every other day. We hope eventually he may not need the steroid as he is doing so well on this: https://www.chewy.com/primal-chicken-salmon-formula/dp/43387

George has been neutered, microchipped, tested negative for fiv/felv, up-to-date with his vaccines and is ready for his forever home.

  • This is Sasha and Simone, who are super sweet, young bonded sisters who really need a hero (or two)! Their story is a sad one. They were nurtured by their human mom since they were about 2-3 weeks old.‎ While 2 of their siblings were adopted to a nice permanent home, Simone and Sasha ended up with irresponsible people, who surrendered the kitties to their rescuer about a year ago. Simone and Sasha are now being fostered by a wonderful young couple, who unfortunately can't adopt, being Australians who are going back home in May 2017. They are lovely cats: affectionate, playful, curious and super-funny, but this is only when they are at home with their trusted foster parents. When they were taken to Petco for adoption events, they were terrified, since they've been accustomed to home life! They really need a forever home of their own--one that will treasure and adore them as they deserve. If you're interested or would like to share them with a friend, let us know!
