KINGSBURG – Kingsburg residents are being asked to leave animal traps they may find in place so the City can continue an ongoing stray cat program.
The traps are put in place to capture stray cats and have the animals receive veterinary car, be spayed or neutered and vaccinated. The strays are then returned to their original location. The traps are humane and have informational cards on them about the TNR program.
Kingsburg is partnering with Fresno Humane Animal Services to employ Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in certain areas to permanently lower the shelter cat euthanasia rates and manage the stray/feral cat population.
The program is made possible through a recent anonymous $5,000 grant and is still in need of volunteers willing to help.
If you, or someone you know, are able to help or if you have questions, contact Community Services Commission Director Adam Castaneda at 897-6549.
