It's good to know that people are thoughtful enough to find a solution that meets the needs of both the cats and those people near the colonies. I hope that the situation that happened recently at the TV station will never happen again. What a humane method.


I live in a rural area and have a problem with feral cats in our back yard, eating our own (spayed!) outdoor cat's food. I don't think we have anyone local who is willing to treat these animals for free. Is there a resource I can use to look for someone?

Sarah, thanks for your post. If you live in one of the counties in our service area - Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield and Goochland - we provide the spaying and neutering and rabies vaccinations at no charge. I can provide you with resources in other counties if you don't reside in this area. Regarding your pet cat's food, you might consider placing it in an area that has a lot of activity (a garage for instance) - somewhere very close to the house, where people are often spotted, etc.
