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 our communities, 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 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 and sign up for their free TNR workshop. Bronx Tails founders Teresa and Jamie are the instructors for the workshops held in the Bronx. Workshop participants may have their feral cat colonies neutered for $5 per cat.
