In partnership with Neighborhood Cats, the Community Cats Podcast is proud to announce the upcoming presentations of their Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Certification Workshop. The two online sessions, scheduled for March 4th and 7th, have been endorsed by the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA), and approved for continuing education credits for animal control professionals.
“Kitten season,” as it is popularly known, typically occurs during spring, when outdoor cats become pregnant and give birth to their kittens in the wild. This puts an unprecedented strain on animal rescuers, as many shelters are overwhelmed with the sheer number of newborn kittens that require care. Consequently, the Trap-Neuter-Return program has emerged as a valuable solution to reduce the number of kittens being born outside and eventually brought to the shelter.
Anyone interested in helping cats and kittens is welcome to register and learn effective TNR practices from seasoned trappers. The workshop covers all aspects of colony management, including planning, preparations for successful trapping, and techniques for helping outdoor cats survive cold winter months. Attendees will have the chance to get their questions answered by Neighborhood Cats’ experts in real-time. All registrants will receive a certificate after completing a short quiz and gain access to an exclusive Facebook group to continue networking with other caregivers.
Each session will run for approximately 2.5 hours, followed by an optional 15-minute Q&A. The registration fee is $10 and covers access to the recorded session, handouts, and certificate, as well as entry to a Facebook discussion group exclusively for trappers and others actively engaged in community cat programs.
Individualized training opportunities for organizations are available upon request. Interested parties should email Stacy LeBaron at email@example.com to learn more about collaborating with Community Cats Podcast.
