One of our TNR dogs - note the snipped off left ear.

One of our TNR cats - note the snipped off left ear.

We have been trying the Trap, Neuter and Release (TNR) method and are mighty glad that it has worked out well. Thanks to the Hulu Selangor District Council which cooperated with us.

About 30 dogs and 60 cats were neutered since we embarked on the project several months ago. If you go to Kuala Kubu Baru and see stray cats and dogs with their left ears snipped - you'll know that they are our TNR strays. The people in the little town have also agreed to practice tolerance towards these animals as they understand that they will not multiply due to the TNR exercise.

The animals are also being fed by various people - including restaurant owners. Since, our experimental TNR programme had gone on successfully - MDDB has decided to court other local councils to do the same.

We have also acquired space in Kerling which will be turned into a TNR center and half-way-farm. Will arrange for pics of the place soon. Wish us luck.
