Top Snippets - Pawareness Podcast # 46 | The Humane Process of Trap, Neuter, Return | Stray Paws Animal Haven
On this episode of the Pawareness Podcast, we welcome Christian Solis and Joe Federico of Stray Paws Animal Haven, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on Trap, Neuter, and Return (TNR),which is a free, humane, community-based program that helps prevent overpopulation and disease in the stray cat populations of their community.
“The goal of our organization is to provide education and resources and make it accessible for the people that want to participate in TNR.” - Christian Solis
Joe explains how their TNR program works, why removing a cat colony doesn’t address overpopulation, and how they’re preventing overwhelm and overcapacity at rescue shelters. Christian sheds light on the impacts their education and resources are making on their community, their most efficient and beneficial animal welfare initiatives in enhancing, and the future goals and plans for Stray Paws Animal Haven.
“We have a way to settle things down in this community and demonstrate this so that all communities can see the benefit of being kind and humane rather than reactive and removal.” - Joe Federico
