TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return)

Panel: Dr. Tom Daniels, Angela Zumwalt, Pat Parrish, Olivia Lynn

TNR is an initiative with proven results in Moore County to help reduce the intake into the county shelter and ultimate population reduction in euthanasia on the way to help make Moore County a no-kill county.
