Description

In 2013, experts organized by the Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs (ACC&D) completed work on a detailed computer simulation model for free-roaming cat populations, published in PLOS ONE in 2014 (“Simulating Free-Roaming Cat Population Management Options in Open Demographic Environments”). This model exceeded past efforts in its scope and level of detail, and provided substantial insight into the most effective ways to manage free-roaming cats. In this companion piece, we translate lessons into guidelines for trap-neuter-return (TNR) management programs.

Objectives

This guidance document covers:
- Key concepts and findings of the PLOS ONE article
- Recommendations and guidelines for trap-neuter-return management programs
- A discussion of unknowns and the need for better data in this realm
