New feral cat spay program
The spca in Bakersfield CA. will spay and nueter feral cats that have been trapped and are disease free. And, have launched a herd program where they release the "fixed" cats into various herd groups where they are semi looked after and cared for. For instance, there is a hugh park where it has been known to be a sort of drop off place for unwanted cats. Rather than having a situation like that get out of control, they started trapping the cats and altering the ones not sick. Then, once the cats are released back into their familar area, there is another org. called the Cat People who recieve alot of leftover food donations. Rather than tossing to the trash, they take the food out to the herd ferals and atempts, are made, to trap any newly spotted cats.
I know there are negatives in feeding the ferals, but in a place that has one of the worst reputations, in the nation, for how they treat the overpopulated and unwanted animal/pet situation....this is a remarkablely hugh plus!!
