Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) are the processes in which feral dog and cat colonies are managed throughout the world. The TNR method has been practised for over 50 years, but it is not known exactly who pioneered the process. The process of feral dog and cat control was being practised in England dating back to the 1950s. TNR refers to dogs and cats that are feral. Essentially by definition referring to companion pets free roaming and unowned. These populations of feral dogs and cats are more susceptible to illness, disease and shortened - life expectancy. Because of their high mortality rate, it is natural for these dogs and cats to fill the void by reproducing. Feral dogs can breed up to two litters a year, often resulting in up to 10 puppies. Feral cats can reproduce up to two litters also, resulting in up to six kittens a year. These numbers may seem low, however, the numbers can soon add up, resulting in more and more dogs and cats struggling to survive.
