Summer is kitten season when feral cats everywhere produce more kittens than rescues and shelters can re-home.
One way to help fight cat overpopulation is by adopting a stray, like Rory. This adorable, 10-week-old female was rescued from a feral cat colony and brought to Lancaster County SPCA in June. She’s curious, friendly, and loves attention.
Other ways to help end cat overpopulation include donating much-needed cat and kitten food; participating in LCSPCA’s trap, neuter, and release (TNR) program; and making sure all pet cats are sterilized, microchipped, and kept indoors.
LCSPCA offers TNR services, whereby feral cats can be trapped, brought to the shelter to be spayed or neutered and vaccinated, and then released where they were trapped.
For more information about adopting Rory or any other pet from LCSPCA, visit www.lancasterspca.org, call (717) 917-6979, or visit the shelter at 848 S. Prince St., Lancaster.
