The Essence of TNR Trust: It all starts with TRAP

TNR Trust is based on 3 pillars: vaccination, sterilization and education

  • Vaccination to prevent rabies caused by dog bites 
  • Sterilization to prevent pet overpopulation population(Dog bites occur when too many dogs fight for too the resources i.e. Males fight for mating rights, dogs gathers to fight for food scraps.
  • Education to convince pet owners that vaccination and sterilization are necessary to bring about a healthy dog and cat population. A healthy animal population also ensures a healthy community: less strays, less competition between dogs and cats and less incidents of bites, transferring diseases to humans, cattle, etc.

In order to vaccinate and sterilize, we firstly need to catch the animal. Below you can see a video of one of our TNR Volunteers trapping a cat. When left unchecked, cats can multiply exponentially!

The cat trapped was found in a little “beehive”: we eventually found its mum, aunt, 1 sibling and another litter of 3 kittens of about 3 months old

If it is just a question or you know of a dog/cat in distress, you can always email us on or contact us through the Facebook page and we will ensure that we get back to you as soon as possible. Note that when a caller notifies us about an animal in distress and that caller can help in some way it, it make it so much easier for us to be able to assist the caller.
