Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to reverse Tulsa’s unthinking and cruel policy of eliminating community cats through education and the establishment of a Community Cat Program for Tulsa; and to make our community cats and our neighborhoods kinder, healthier and safer for both cats and citizens.

Trap-Neuter-Return is a proven effective approach to cat population management.

Some people are under the mistaken impression that there is a choice between having cats in their neighborhoods and not having cats. Catching and killing cats has failed for decades. It does not decrease feral cat populations. Trap-Neuter-Return does effectively reduce and stabilize feral cat populations.

We will continue to TNR until the save rate for cats and kittens at the municipal shelter is at a nationally acceptable level.

Our 2019 goal is to increase from 60 to 120 community cats Trapped-Neutered-Vaccinated-Returned (TNVRed) per month.

Using national humane protocols, cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped for identification, and then returned to their outdoor homes. T-Town TNR works with clinics that can accommodate low cost, high volume, and high-quality sterilization.

This in turn reduces the euthanasia rates in the city shelters and allows more resources to be directed to the adoptable cats.
To increase from 60 to 120 community cats Trapped-Neutered-Vaccinated-Returned (TNVRed) per month.

T-Town TNR, Inc. has a sound organizational and financial base.

Our support system is critical to our success and sustainability. The support system for our volunteer team members include our partnerships with local veterinarians, spay/neuter clinics, animal welfare groups, including those with adoption programs, and our relationships with our municipal shelter and city leaders.

In addition, for each project, we identify and maintain contact with the colony caretakers who are a crucial element to the success of each project in the TNR event and ongoing with feline welfare.

We also partner with national and other successful city programs to help us do our job better. These include OK Humane in OK City, Alley Cat Allies, the Humane Society of the United States, and Best Friends Animal Society.

Finally, and possibly most important, is our public which supports us financially.

We have spayed and neutered 2,400 cats since 2011. We increased our number of cats surgically sterilized and vaccinated from 2017 to 2018 by 27%.

Our goal for 2019 is to increase from 60 to 120 community cats Trapped-Neutered-Vaccinated-Returned (TNVRed) per month.
