TNR program May 20

-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. May 20. For $30 per cat, a service from Vanderburgh County will have the cats spayed or neutered. Traps are available to borrow from the shelter for a $5 fee. Cats will be ready for pickup at 10 a.m. May 21 and then released where they were caught. If you plan to drop a cat off for the program, you must register at least two weeks prior to May 20 and pay fees at that time. For more information, call the shelter at 547-6381. Other dates for the program are July 15, Sept. 16 and Nov. 18.

A donation jar has also been set up at Julie’s Tell Street Cafe in Tell City.
