Learn about trap-neuter-return efforts to reduce feral cat population at Laurel workshop

January 31, 2012

Two cat advocacy groups are joining forces to offer a workshop in Laurel on the trap-neuter-return method of reducing feral cat populations, and other ways to humanely care for cats, Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Laurel Municipal Pool meeting room, Main and Ninth streets.

Alley Cat Allies, a national organization, will co-host the workshop with Laurel Cats, a local group of cat advocate volunteers, to present educational and hands-on training on humane programs for feral and stray cats.

The workshop covers trap-neuter-return, a program that is used to end the breeding cycle for feral cats. Participants will learn about volunteer opportunities in Laurel; instructions on setting a humane trap or using deterrents to keep cats away from areas; and training on colony care.
