SCARF Launches New Program
SCARF, the Shelby County Animal Shelter, and the City of Sidney are working together to control the feral cat population in Shelby County. A feral cat is a cat that has been born into wildness or has not had human interaction for a significant period of time and is able to survive in the wild.
The Shelby County Animal Shelter will conduct anaother TRAP-Neuter-Return (TNR) clinic for feral cats in the community again on October 3rd & December 12th. SCARF volunteers will work to notify the neighborhood where trapping will occur, trap cats, and return them to their neighborhood once the procedure has been completed. While the cats are at the clinic, they will be vaccinated against rabies and will have an ear tipped for identification purposes. Neighbors will be asked to keep pet cats indoors during the trapping and to refrain from feeding the feral cats so they may be more easily trapped. Funding for the program will be shared by the City of Sidney and SCARF.
According to Alley Cat Allies (a national advocacy organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of cats), scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane and effective approach for managing feral cats. Trap-Neuter-Return improves the life of feral cats, improves their relationship with the people living near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time. The neutered cats will roam less and will not fight for mates thereby creating less noise.
Anyone wishing to volunteer for this program is urged to call the Animal Shelter at 937-498-7201
