Loans & Rentals of Traps, Dividers & Cages

People who have completed the TNR Certification Workshop may borrow or rent traps, dividers, and cages from trap banks. Book your spay/neuter appointments prior to reserving the traps. Traps are lent to Certified TNR Caretakers only — you must have completed The Neighborhood Cats TNR Workshop to qualify. Please allow 2–3 weeks to reserve equipment.

Note: Some changes have been made to the trap bank list found in the materials you received at workshops held before October 2010. Click here to view and print complete information about these new trap banks and their procedures, as well as all NYC trap banks. We suggest you print out the page and replace page 5 in your "Local Resources" section with the updated page.
