About Tarboro TNR

Tarboro TNR is comprised of volunteers that are dedicated to the health and safety of Tarboro's feral cat population. First we identify a feral cat comunity. We then notify folks in the neighborhood that we will be trapping in the area. Volunteers set humane traps which attract free-roaming cats in targeted neighborhoods. After the cats are trapped they are transported to one of our cooperating vets where the cat is spayed or neutered. Each cat is then ear tipped to indentify it as a TNR cat. The cat is then transported to a volunteers home for a period of recovery before it is returned to it's original location. If for some reason the cat(s) cannot be returned to the original location then a safe alternate location is selected for release.

We are also a rescue group. We rescue cats from the Tarboro Animal Shelter, and take them back to our Foster House, where the cats live. We then socialize the cats if they're not too trusting of humans, and once socialized enough, we take them out to PetSmarts in Rocky Mount, Wilson & Smithfield on most weekends for adoption events. We also have local adoption events and offer scheduled visits at the Foster House.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
