What is the shelter's approach to TNR (Trap, Neuter and Release)?

The City does not have a Trap Neuter and Release Program (TNR), and it is currently prohibited by City Ordinance. The City’s Animal Advisory Board recently approved the implementation of a pilot TNR program in a targeted area. The purpose of the pilot program is to determine the feasibility of an expanded program. Upon completion of the program, results will be reviewed with the Animal Advisory Board.

Until such time as the ordinances are modified, residents and animal advocates are advised to remain compliant with City ordinances. Anyone with hands-on experience working with feral cat colonies that is interested in assisting with the pilot program is encouraged to reach out via email at animalservices@sugarlandtx.gov.
