Little Brook Farm, a rescue in Old Chatham, New York, has come to the aid of a Columbia County farm dealing with a serious feral cat overpopulation problem.
Feral cats are often dropped off at farms during the night, which only contributes to the problem. Since these cats generally aren’t spayed or neutered, the population can get out of control very quickly.
The farm’s owners have been doing their best to feed the feral cats, but with the numbers getting out of hand, the cost has become unreasonable. Currently the owners are buying 80 pounds of dry food and seven cases of wet food per week just to keep the cats fed.
Little Brook Farm is helping to get the problem under control. Spaying and neutering, as well as medical services are also being provided by Animalkind in Hudson and Sheep Meadow Animal Hospital in Ghent.
