Webinars: ‘Smart TNR’ and fighting back against the naysayers

Is your TNR group struggling to stay on top of everything you need to do? Are you sick and tired of being told “TNR doesn’t work,” without really knowing how to make the case that it does? These two webinars are for you!

Bryan Kortis is National Programs Director for Neighborhood Cats. John Boone wears many hats: Research Director, Great Basin Bird Observatory; Board Chair, SPCA of Northern Nevada; and Board of Directors, Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs. They’ve teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States to present “Smart TNR: Tracking success to achieve key goals.”

Scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 28, 3-4 PM Eastern Time, the webinar will “outline key, measurable goals and the metrics and outcomes that will benchmark your work to manage community cat populations and help you show success.”

Kortis is back, this time teaming up with Katie Lisnick, Director of Cat Policy and Protection for the Humane Society of the United States, for a Tuesday, Oct. 17, 3-4 PM Eastern webinar, “Combating the Naysayers: Who says there’s no proof TNR works?” In it, they’ll walk you through “a wealth of published, peer-reviewed research that demonstrates TNR results in intake and euthanasia decline, nuisance abatement and population reduction, while attempts at eradication are largely futile.”
