TNR Utopia is a family run cat rescue

TNR Utopia is a family run cat rescue that focuses on the trap, neuter, and return (TNR) of feral cats in northern Queens, NYC. Of course, when dealing with feral cats, we often encounter kittens who are small enough to be socialize and adopted into forever homes.

We are a small group of dedicated animal lovers who spend our spare time rescuing cats and kittens. Although small, we do our best to help all that contact us.

We are TNR certified through the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, NYC Feral Cat Initiative in partnership with the ASPCA.

The Importance of TNR

Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. TNR is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes.

Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of cat colonies over time.
