Organizations that Oppose TNR

American Bird Conservancy
“THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that American Bird Conservancy calls for…humane removal of all free-roaming cats beginning with areas important to wildlife; opposes human behavior permitting cats to roam free;…strongly opposes managed free-roaming cat colonies;…urges local, state, and federal wildlife agencies, public health organizations, legislative bodies and the public to ban and eliminate free-roaming cat colonies through humane capture by animal care and control facilities….”
American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
“An insignificant percentage of the total number of unowned free-roaming and feral cats are being managed by humane organizations. Consequently, the reduction in the total number of free-roaming cats these programs will effect is insignificant.”
National Animal Control Association (NACA)“Animal Control Officers should be empowered to remove all feral and unwanted cats from the community.”
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
“Please do not allow the prospect of euthanasia to deter you from trapping cats. If you leave them where they are, they will almost certainly die a painful death. A painless injection is far kinder than any fate that feral cats will meet if left to survive on their own.”
PETA Policy
