It all started with one lone feral male cat showing up half starved years ago, and could have grown into a serious problem if not for the kind support of Rebecca at Franklin County SPCA. Over the years more strays have shown up at the feeder, and thanks to the feral neuter voucher program the numbers have only grown by seven instead of dozens. Last year Rebecca provided a feral cat house built by the Boyscouts to help with a warm safe shelter. We provide daily food and a drinking water source year round, and the cats return the favor by eliminating snakes, mice and moles from the area. All in all it is a win-win situation. Thanks SPCA!!!
My experience was wonderful. Everyone was so helpful. I felt really bad about having my dog fixed because I did not want to cause him any pain. Everyone helped me feel better about the whole situation with reassuring words and pleasant smiles.
