Council launches fund to help with controlling stray cats

From First Up, 5:14 am on 21 August 2019

The days of stray cats roaming free and causing havoc in Hamilton are numbered with the launch of a 100-thousand dollar fund to desex and rehome them. Organisations that can show proof of a cat desexing and rehoming programme are entitled to apply. The council says the money can't be used to euthanise cats or desex privately-owned ones. The city's Animal Education and Control Manager Susan Stanford told our reporter, Andrew McRae that the idea came from the cat welfare group, Paws for Life.
