Hornell, NY to start TNR program

According to an article on the the Evening Tribune website, Hornell- a town in western New York State, is working on instituting a Trap-Neuter-Return program.  They are currently working on setting up a site for a temporary spay/neuter clinic that can be up and running soon, while they also work on constructing a permanent site by the Humane Society.

We applaud towns like Hornell that embrace TNR. Time after time it has been shown to be less expensive than catch-and-kill programs, and community cats provide services to the towns where they live, like rodent control.  You can read the entire article here.

Does your town or county have a TNR program?  If not, you can encourage your town council to embrace TNR by using the sample letter in our activist packet.  You can find it here.
