We have begun to Trap feral cats, Neuter them and Return them in October 2016. I have picked up and released more that 50 cats the first month. I’m very excited to let you know that the City of Dayton now has 32 more cats that are now spayed/neutered. And the City of Bellevue has 35.
I will help you trap the cats; I will transport them to a participating clinic and return the cat. Your returned cat will be spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccine and ear tip. All of these services are FREE! The ear tip tells anyone that sees the cat that it is part of a colony and it is altered.
We have already reduced euthanasia in the shelter. It is throuigh funds from a grant to motivate our shelter to increase live release rates. I work for 9 cities in the county and so far I have TNR’ed in Dayton, Bellevue, Melbourne, Silver Grove, Silver Grove and Ft. Thomas 126 cats.
If you already feed strays give me a call and I will get you on the list for a trap. 859-292-3622. If we had no more homeless kittens or cats in Campbell County that would be a blessing! Animal control and the shelters do not want animals to be euthanized. We want them cared for. You are part of the solution!
