Union Gap cat owners get money to spay and neuter pets

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.--Pawsitive Alliance gives the Humane Society of Central Washington close to $13,000 dollars to help solve a big problem.

The stray cat population is growing in Yakima County, and this money will help Union Gap cat owners pay to get their animals spayed or neutered.

The executive director of the Humane Society, Alan Landvoy, said cats can produce up to two litters a year.

Landvoy said, "Within 7 years, can be up over 4,000 cats so that's how big of a potential problem this is."

People living in Union Gap can go to the Humane Society in Yakima, fill out an application and get a certificate to take to a vet.

Cat owners will be responsible for a co-pay of $10-$20.

The funds will last until the end of the year.
