Lynn Kopka, organizer and president of Troy City Council, holds a feral kitten at the Troy Veterinary Hospital during Operation Snip Round Two on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 in Troy, NY. The program, funded through a grant, was done with a large group of volunteers and donations from Animal Support Project, Kitten Angels, Hope, Scruff, Troy Veterinary Hospital and Mohawk Hudson Humane Society along with other groups. Feral cats in the Lansingburgh area of Troy were trapped beginning on Thursday and then housed and cared for in a heated warehouse. On Sunday the cats then went in for surgery to spay or neuter them and other medical treatments before be returned to the warehouse for recovery. By Monday evening the cats will be returned to the area they were trapped in. Kopka said that any kittens caught would be adopted out but that the adult cats would be too aggressive towards humans. Kopka, also said that following this round they hope to receive a larger grant to continue the work to spay or neuter the feral cats in Troy. (Paul Buckowski / Times Union)
