On Thursday, March 13, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is sponsoring a cat trapping class at the shelter, 1855 S.E. Inner Loop, at 6:30 p.m.
TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) programs are an alternative to euthanizing feral cats. Under these programs, cats are trapped and spayed or neutered to reduce the number of feral kittens born annually. Then individuals agree to feed the cats, and the cats can remain on their property.
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter supports the efforts of non-profit organizations that perform TNR of feral cats. Cat-trapping classes will be offered at the Regional Animal Shelter the second Thursday of each month. The class is free of charge. Information on trapping as well as where to obtain traps, free spay/neuter for feral cats and how to maintain a colony also will be given.
For information, go to www.streetcatrescue.com; www.shadowcats.net; or www.alleycat.org.
Please call Cheryl Schneider at 512-943-3322 for more information and/or to register for the cat trapping class. The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter is located at 1855 S.E. Inner Loop in Georgetown.
