Cheyenne Animal Shelter Addresses Feral Cat Issue

Staff   4-4, 2016

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter is working with a nonprofit group from Colorado to attempt to curb the feral cat problem in the Capital City. Niki Rose, spokesperson for the shelter, says they hope the Trap-Neuter-Return program will cut down on the number of feral cats being born. Rose says cats are trapped, fixed and release back to where they were caught.

Rose says, last month, over a dozen cats were caught but the feral cat population in Cheyenne is growing.

A Best Friends Animal Society grant is funding the program. If anyone wants information or knows about a feral cat population they can contact the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.
