HARRISON, N.Y. -- Volunteers from Pet Rescue and Bully Baby Rescue worked side-by-side with four veterinarians and several technicians to spay and neuter nearly 60 feral cats April 11-12.
This was part of the Trap-Neuter-Release program conducted by the Pet Rescue facility in Harrison. According to the U.S. Humane Society, only about 2 percent of the 30 to 40 million feral and stray cats have been spayed or neutered. These cats produce about 80 percent of the kittens born in the United States. Programs like this go a long way in helping reduce shelter cat populations and to keep more cats from being euthanized when shelter space runs short.
Pet Rescue clinic manager Ruth Frumkin was thrilled with the effort, saying she was amazed at how well it all came together.
“It was wonderful to see so many volunteers join in and help, it worked like a well-run machine. I sincerely hope we can do more of these in the future,” she said.
“We are delighted to be a part of this important effort. We are grateful to everyone who participated, from funders to doctors, trappers to everyone in between, volunteers were critical to the day’s success,” added Tracy Wolak, president and founder of Bully Baby Rescue.
