The TNR Project

Sterilize....Don't Euthanize!

The TNR Project is a 100% self-help & volunteer group of individuals who work full-time and practice Trap-Neuter-Return for stray, homeless, feral and community cats twice a week after work. By practicing TNR on the streets, we are helping to take shelters to No-Kill status. Learn to TNR and join our team!

Best Friends Catnippers TNR Clinic: Volunteer or TNR!

  • FixNation 7680 Clybourn Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 91352 United States (map)

Catnippers is an all-volunteer, bi-monthly program that allows individuals to work hands-on to spay and neuter approximately one hundred feral cats.  This “MASH-style” clinic has been operated by FixNation for nearly 10 years without fail!  Volunteers, both skilled veterinary professionals and unskilled animal lovers, are always welcome.  The TNR Project really recommends that you volunteer at least once at one of these events. It is an invaluable source of education if you TNR! See how it's done, how it works, the preparation all the way through to completion & recovery! Be a part of the solution! Everyone is welcome!

An initial application and reservations are required in advance. Please do not bring cats to the clinic without a confirmed reservation. To complete a Feral Cat Application, click here. Please specify in the application that you are interested in Catnippers reservations.

If you are one of our regular caregivers and have been to either FixNation or Catnippers before with feral cats, please email Ivy Ramirez for reservations at

Our Catnippers clinics are specifically dedicated to feral cats and kittens. All cats coming to the Catnippers clinics are required to be homeless, feral or stray and will be eartipped. Tame cats and kittens should be scheduled through FixNation during normal business hours.

Our Catnippers clinics are staffed entirely by volunteers, including volunteer licensed vets and vet techs. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers to join our team. If you are interested in volunteering for an upcoming Catnippers clinic, please email Carol Long, our Catnippers Volunteer Coordinator, at
