RCHS to discuss local feral cat problem

The Rutland County Humane Society is taking the battle against feline overpopulation to the streets. One way to fight this battle is through trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs. TNR is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in neighborhoods, barns and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated against rabies and sterilized by veterinarians. Young kittens may be adopted into homes. Healthy cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitats under the lifelong care of volunteers. To learn more about TNR, join RCHS for an informational seminar on Wednesday, Feb. 28, from 68 p.m. at the Rutland Free Library. Refreshments, a video of cats without a home and more information about volunteer opportunities involved with TNR will be offered. If you have any questions or would like more information contact Jessica at (802) 483-9171 or e-mail jessica at jessica@rchsvt.org.
