A feral cat is a "wild" cat that is not domesticated, they are like any other wild animal. These are cats whose past relatives were good old fashioned strays but that had kittens that never came in contact with humans and are now all grown up and are unable to be touched or handled. If you or your neighbors are feeding cats living in your neighborhood, it is best that you get them fixed and return them back to your neighborhood. Feral cats are usually euthanized in shelters when they don't have to be due to space and safety issues. They can live out their life in the environment they have been acustomed to surviving and living in. The right and humane thing to do is to get them fixed and keep them in the neighborhood. Over time the colony will reduce in size and no longer exist. We are at capacity with felines and require a phone call to schedule dropoffs. If you choose to rent a humane trap from Dessin, the fee is $60 for a two-week rental. The shelter retains $10 if the trap is returned empty; if the trap contains a cat the shelter retains $25. Thank you in advance for your understanding! If you have questions or concerns, please call the shelter at (570) 253-4037.
One female cat + One male cat = 420,000 Kittens in 7 years.
