Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM)

About Us

TNRM Malaysia is a non-profit, non-governmental, registered society run by volunteers.

Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) is a humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing community stray cat and dog populations in Malaysia. TNRM relies on sterilisation of the animals so that they don't breed.

In a nutshell,  we TRAP stray cats and dogs, NEUTER/spay them, then RELEASE/rehome after post-op recovery in order to MANAGE the stray population in Malaysia in the most humane, effective and sustainable way.

What We Do

TNRM begins with the trapping of community strays using humane trapping methods. The captured strays are taken to a veterinary clinic where they are sterilized and vaccinated. The sterilised strays are marked so that they can be easily identified, usually by cropping the pointed end of the ear so that it has a square appearance (known as ear tipping) or cutting a notch (V-shape) at the tip or on the side of the ear.

After the animal has recovered from surgery, it is subsequently released to the site of capture.  The strays are then managed back in their original environment.

A caregiver/community feeder then provides regular food and monitors the colony over time. With TNRM, the animals' reproductive capacities are eliminated, leading to a gradual decline in their numbers.  Sterilised animals also benefit in terms of health, with much lower risks of contracting certain diseases and a longer lifespan.  Nuisance behaviors such as aggression, territorial marking, etc are also substantially reduced.

How You Can Help

We solely rely on public donations to operate.  Funds collected mainly go to the neutering/spaying of stray animals, vaccinations, medical vet bills, purchasing equipment, maintenance of the TNRM Transit Centre and the maintenance of the TNRM Mobile.
