Miami Township and Humane Society team up to begin Community Cat Program
MIAMI TWP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Miami Township and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton are teaming up to begin the Community Cat Program, which is designed to reduce the number of un-owned cats out on the streets.
Residents can take part in the program by renting a trap from the Humane Society and putting down a $75 deposit which they will get back after the trap is returned to the shelter, then humanely trap un-owned cats on their property.
After the cat is trapped, a resident can call the Humane Society at 937-268-7387 to schedule a time to drop off the cat. The animal has to be at least two pounds and 8 weeks old to safely have surgery, which includes spaying or neutering and ear-tipping. Once a cat is marked, it will be released where it was initially trapped. If space allows, friendly cats will be added into the Humane Society's adoption program.
