“Working With Us” TNR Video: What to expect and guidelines in this tnr video. Please note that the Voiceless-MI program is different than Carol’s ferals. What we expect is the same but our drop off, pick up and trapping times will differ. These videos are for guidelines on what to expect and how to trap.  We recommend trapping the cats the night before bringing them in for surgery. Please speak with Voiceless-MI on how to best time your trapping, we are here to help! Enjoy your TNR videos.
