TNR EVENTS

 In March 2015 we hosted two ASPCA Spay/Neuter clinic transports. 54 feral cats were TNR'd, two rescued dogs were neutered, 4 adoptable cats and 10 recently adopted cats and kittens were spayed or neutered.  

In the first few days of April we had seven emergency spays that couldn't wait until our April 8 Spay/Neuter transport. Six cats were taken to the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Clinic in Glendale, and one to the Briarcliff SPCA.

GRATEFUL CAT OF THE MONTH  - Plato

we heard about plato 6 months ago, but it took US that long to trap him because he didn't have a regular schedule.  someone put a heavy metal collar around his neck and he couldn't get it off.  Some people said he had it for years.  Our friend glen spotted him and called and we went with a trap and good food and we got him.  The next step was to hold him for a few days in a safe place with good food and love to build him up a little.  The vet gave him a shot to make him groggy and then we raced him to our local fire station, where the guys of engine 63 & ladder 39 (including our favorite firefighter Robert Painter) used giant bolt cutters to cut the collar off.  thanks to all from plato!!


Bronx Tails Cat Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

We are volunteers, dedicated to improving the lives of local stray and feral cats in the Bronx and Harlem by performing Trap-Neuter-Return of stray and feral cats living in managed colonies in our communities, providing medical care for sick and injured feral cats, and rescuing friendly strays for adoption to forever homes.  


WE ARE NOT A SHELTER AND CAN NOT TAKE IN PEOPLE'S PETS.


TRAP - NEUTER - RETURN    (TNR)

is exactly what it sounds like ... using humane traps to capture stray (thrown out) or feral (born outside, afraid of people) cats, taking them to the veterinarian to be spayed (girls) or neutered (boys), caring for them for a few days while they recover from surgery, and then returning them to the place where they were trapped. TNR is absolutely the most humane and effective way to control the feral and stray cat population.  The volunteers of Bronx Tails feed hundreds of "outside" cats, TNR the cats we find, supply and set up winter shelters for them, teach and assist others with TNR projects, try to find homes for friendly strays, and provide medical care for sick and injured cats when possible.  If you are feeding stray and/or feral cats and are interested in learning how to TNR them, please go to www.neighborhoodcats.org or www.feralcat.org and sign up for their free TNR workshops.  Bronx Tails founders Teresa and Jamie are the instructors for the workshops held in the Bronx. Workshop participants may borrow traps and receive transportation assistance and have their feral cat colonies spayed and neutered for free by the ASPCA.
