With money out of her own pocket... a local pocket... a local woman is bringing awareness to the "stray" cat issue in the valley.
She created the "spay and neuter awareness project to help lower the pet populaton.
News 10's jordan kudisch news 10's jordan kudisch is live this morning from the springhill area.
She spoke with the woman behind the message..
And explains what she's doing to help feral cats in the area.
/// in this area alone... cats are constantly roaming the streets... even in this bitter cold weather.
The woman i spoke with decided she wanted to help these cats..
That's by making homemade shelters for them.
Let me explain..
Roughly 1.5 million pets were euthanized in 2018 because there were just not enough homes.
In addition... several of those pets lived on the streets braving the elements.
Megan decided it was time for change.
Through her project... she and others... created mobile shelters.
Made from recycled materials and straw..
They created safety for feral cats.
They also help capture the cats so that they can get fixed.
According to megan, she says unless they get fixed... there will be no real solution.
Support spaying and neutering, take part in it even if it's capturing a few of the cats in the neighborhood to get them fixed// it'll continue every year unless we get to the room of the problem which is spaying a neutering those animals."
When i come back i'll dive deeper into why megan decided to take on this responsibility..
And how you can help.
