Feral cat over population is rampant in Northumberland County. Northumberland Humane Society volunteers, in conjunction with local veterinaraians have succesfully trapped, sterilized & vaccinated over 600 feral cats since 2008.
Our Feral Cat Program, funded totally by donations; reduces residents concerns of cat fighting, urine spraying, yowling, and spread of disease as well as controlling the feral cat population.
Feral cats located in dangerous areas have been relocated to established feral colonies where N.H.S. assists guardians to provide food & shelter.
Young feral kittens are kept in foster care & bottle fed kitten formula until old enough to be sterilized & are then placed for adoption at N.H.S. shelter. This eliminates euthanasia, or the uncertain life as a feral for these helpless kittens.
In order to continue our Feral Cat Program to serve the large county of Northumberland we are seeking your support to trap, sterilize & vaccinate 750 feral cats. Thank you!
