Troy rounding up stray cats for neutering
March 22, 2012
TROY, N.Y. — The city of Troy is trying to get its stray cat population under control.
City officials are calling it “Operation Snip.” They plan to round up 150 stray cats, neuter them, and then set them free.
The city is working with the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, the Rensselaer County Humane Society, and other animal care groups.
City officials said the overpopulation of feral cats is becoming a concern. The Humane Society said they’ve identified South Troy as a “hot spot” for free-roaming kittens being born.
The organizations will start in April, catching about 25 cats a day for surgery and rabies vaccination.
