A pair of breeding feral cats, which can have two or more litters
per year, can produce 420,000 offspring over a seven-year period
The Welfare of Animals Group [WAG] will be humanely trapping stray and feral cats in the Mt. Zion area Sunday, June 17 to have them spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped, the universal sign that a cat has been part of a Trap-Neuter-Return [TNR] program).
WAG would appreciate if you would not put food out for them on Saturday, June 16 as we will be trapping on Sunday morning. Once the cats have recovered from anesthesia (at least 24 to 48 hours) the group will return them to their exact location. They will be healthier, happier, and not reproducing and fighting. Thank you for your cooperation. To date WAG has spayed and neutered 117 community cats (62 females and 55 males).
Please keep your personal cats indoors or put a collar on them on Sunday the 17th. If you have any questions, please call Gail at 304-354-6363.
Partial funding for Trap-Neuter-Return program is provided by The Oakland Foundation, The Bernard McDonough Foundation, and the West Virginia Department of Agriculture.
