Help Free-Roaming Cats Through TNR

Thanks to Fox 10 News for sharing this story about the ADLA and AHS TNR Program.  ADLA is happy to report that it has TNR’d 5,000 cats in the first year of the TNR initiative with Arizona Humane Society. 3,500 of those cats came from six target zip codes that have highest surrender rates at the Sunnyslope shelter. The rest came from low income caregivers throughout the Valley who came to the monthly clinics at AHS. Thank you AHS!
