The Humane Way to Control Cat Colonies

Pets Uniting People Society (P.U.P.S.) contracted Northside Veterinary Clinic to host Neuter/Spay Days August 21, 28, and 29th. Thirty free-roaming cats were neutered or spayed (grant from The Ohio Pet Fund) and a rabies shot (cost of the rabies shots provided by generous donation from Mrs. Susan Pike, PUPS Board Member), all at no charge for the colony caregivers. We cannot always offer a free clinic, but when we can we will.

Unfortunately there are colony cats in neighborhoods that are not being altered or clinically vetted for rabies or other health problems. If cats are carriers of feline leukemia, they may have to be humanely euthanized so the disease does not spread.

Read about healthy and positive ways to manage a cat colony in the next issue of “PUPS Digest”. People and cats can live harmoniously. Why don’t we give it a try.
