-A A +A

PERRY COUNTY – County residents are asked to help the Perry County Animal Shelter in controlling stray cats in the area with a Trap, Neuter and Release program.
The program is for stray cats only. Residents who are willing to capture a stray may take it to the shelter at 200 Herzeele St. in Cannelton between 5:30 and 6 a.m. March 19. For $30 per cat, a service from Vanderburgh County will have the cats spayed or neutered. Cats will be ready for pickup at 10 a.m. March 20 and then released where they were caught.
If you plan to drop a cat off for the program, you must register one week prior to March 19.
For more information, call the shelter at 547-6381.
Other program dates will be May 21, July 16, Sept. 17 and Nov. 19. A donation jar will also be set up at Celebrations on Main Street in Tell City to help gather funds for the service.
