Phoenix College announces it will keep TNR program

On Monday, Phoenix College updated their Facebook page with the news that the college "is recommitted to strengthening its TNR program."

In December 2013, Phoenix College officials had decided to end its trap-neuter-return (TNR) program after eight years, and remove the cats from the campus. On Sunday, the cats were to be taken to the Arizona Humane Society, where there was a chance they would be euthanized if not adopted.

The college's online newspaper, Bear Tracks, mentioned on Monday how they "understand the concern from the community regarding the safety of the feral cat community." College administration, it said, has worked with members of the surrounding community, and reached out to various local animal rescue organizations for assistance.

"In light of the community rehoming campaign bringing the size of the colony down to a manageable level," the school's newspaper says, "Phoenix College is recommitting to a strengthened TNR program. This will include the designation of an employee to oversee the program."

Phoenix College also plans on setting up an educational program for the campus community on the proper handling of feral cat communities, and an awareness program for the students, staff and community, according to Bear Tracks.

There were 20 cats on the campus. Seven of those cats have found homes.
