MEDFORD, Ore. — In an effort to curb the amount of feral cats in the streets, volunteers organized a one day “Spay-A-Thon” for wild cats this weekend.
“The whole point of this is that people need to take the tiny bit of effort to fix their one pet cat, which can be picked up put in a carrier and taken to a veterinary office. We will help them do that,” said Sally Mackler who helped with the event on Sunday.
According to Jackson County Animal Control, wild and homeless cats are a big problem. Licensed veterinarians performed the procedures and also vaccinated and treated the feral cats for parasites at the event.
