Origins

  • 1950's: TNR was first introduced during the 1950s in Britain, and then in Denmark during the 1970s. The practice was introduced in the U.S. around the same time, but remained largely “underground” until the formation of Alley Cat Allies in 1990.. More

  • History of TNR Nationally

  • 1990: TNR strategic planning began in Washington DC as Becky Robinson, President and Founder of Alley Cat Allies, seeks to find a humane solution to the millions of cats born outside and feral in the USA.

  • History of TNR in Atlanta

    • 2002 To save pets lives LifeLine begins advancing online forums to find homes for homeless pets in shelters including Atlantapets.org, a searchable “virtual” shelter on the internet with animals from 70+ rescue organizations. CATLANTA was launched─the first and largest organized feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return program in Atlanta.
    • 2003 LifeLine continues its commitment to collaboration between animal rescues and advocates with the opening of LAP (Lifeline Animal Project) Dog House and The Kitty Motel a low-cost boarding facility that still plays host to shelter cats in a cage-free environment while they await adoption. 70+ organized rescue groups take the cats to various adoption events. This facility considerably benefited by the largess of Janet Bogle.
    • 2004-2006 LifeLine spearheaded the No More Homeless Pets Atlanta partnering with Best Friends Animal Society**. Achieving No More Homeless Pets in Atlanta was a daunting task in a metro area of 4.5 million people that euthanized 90,000 animals a year. Under the direction of Rebecca Guinn, co-founder of Atlanta's Lifeline Animal Project (LAP), Best Friends Animal Society in Atlanta oversaw a variety of programs. Further organizing AtlantaPets.org was one of their most successful collaborative efforts, Atlanta's "virtual animal shelter." This LifeLine program brings together rescue groups and a dozen animal control facilities together on one website (complete with links to individual sites). At any given time there are 1,800 animals listed. The site is visited 15,000 times a month -- with between 6,000 and 8,000 unique visitors.
      **A hugely successful, well managed and creative animal environment and shelter with roots in Utah. Atlanta Pet Rescue joined Best Friends in 2016.
    • 2013 LifeLine Animal Project takes over DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services.
    • 2015-2016 LifeLine Animal Project has made history obtaining no-kill levels at our Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) shelter in November, December and January.

    We patronize the animals for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they are more finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other Nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth. ― Henry Beston
