The Herer Springs Humane Society and Animal Control started their Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program earlier this year and have shared a special announcement with the public.
“We just released our 100th cat which came from the post office area of Highway 25B. We clipped her left ear, to indicate she had been fixed and released. We would like the public to know that anytime they see a cat with their left ear clipped, that cat has been vaccinated and spayed or neutered by us.” Mary David, Treasurer of the Heber Springs Humane Society and point person for the TNR program, told the The Sun Times.
This being such a new program, a lot of people in the area are not aware of it. Encouraged by the success they have had so far, the HSHS is seeking donations to the program. $45 cover the cost to sterilize and vaccinate each cat they capture and then release. For more information about the TNR program, please check their Facebook page. Donations can also be sent by mail to P.O. Box 401, Heber Springs, AR 72543, and you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation in return.
