FHS to begin year with ‘Cat Snip Day’

From staff reports

The Fayette Humane Society will begin another round of spaying and neutering stray and feral cats on Friday, Jan. 15 through the “Operation Cat Snip” program.

Since the winter season with colder temperatures is here, it is unsafe to leave cats in traps for long periods. The humane society is asking residents to bring in stray cats for the surgery, then keep the cats in a safe area until they recover. Traps and carriers can be borrowed from the society. Please call the Adoption and Business Center at 740-335-8126 to make an appointment for cats to be spayed or neutered.

“There is no cost for stray cats but donations are always accepted. Cats will be spayed or neutered, given rabies vaccinations, and the tip of their left ear removed so that they can be identified. They will be able to return home the afternoon of the surgery,” said Brad Adams, outreach director.

If you are interested in helping the Humane Society help feral cats, please call the humane society at 740-335-8126.

The Fayette Humane Society is a non-profit (501(c)(3), volunteer organization. They receive less than 2 percent of their support from governmental organizations and therefore must rely on donations, grants and fundraising to carry out their mission. The Humane Society is the only organization in Fayette County able to respond to calls about abused, neglected and injured domestic animals, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
