About 22 cats went through the program Friday, with additional cats coming in next week. Assistance from the sanctuary and its Facebook followers helped make it happen, Jordan said.
After a few days of medical care, the cats will be released where they were found. Jordan said it’s heart-breaking she can’t find homes for all of them.
“There’s just so many cats and so few homes that some of them have to go back. Cats are the No. 1 animal killed in the shelter simply because they’re such prolific breeders,” she said. “This makes a difference.”
Additional donations will allow CALICO to trap more cats this summer to be spayed and neutered. For more information on the programs, visit hishands-extendedsanctuary.com or calico-tnr.org.
Every cat that goes through the program reduces the overpopulation problem, said CALICO co-founder Debra Smith.
“There’s things you can do. One person can make a difference. One cat can make a difference,” Smith said.
