APL Takes Aim At Stray And Feral Cats


Spring is here... and love is in the air.

But that's not necessarily a good thing when it comes to stray and feral cats.  This is the time of the year when unwanted litters wind up at the Animal Protective League in Springfield.  Last year, about 1,000 animals were brought to APL.  Only about half are adopted.  The no-kill shelter has launched an effort to help the situation.

During April, free spay and neuter surgeries and rabies vaccinations are being offered.  The goal is to prevent more kittens from winding up at the APL. All residents of Sangamon County can participate.  Just contact the APL at 789-SPAY (7729) and mention the Community Cat program when scheduling an appointment.
