Veterinary volunteers from the Richmond SPCA and Banfield Pet Hospitals took action yesterday (6/20) to help alleviate the number of feral cats in the Richmond area.
Trap Neuter Return, TNR, is the mantra at the SPCA and they perform about 1,200 feral cat spay and neuter procedures annually. For several weeks SPCA and Banfield vets alerted feral cat rescuers that they were aiming to do 100 surgeries in one day.
Robin Starr, CEO of the SPCA, said cats were also given rabies shots.
TNR, she said, is the humane way to control feral cat colonies.
