The Prince Rupert SPCA is calling for volunteers to help curtail the number of feral and stray cats in the community.
Branch manager Jamey Morris says Prince Rupert, like many BC towns and cities, has an out-of-control cat population.
Morris says the trap-neuter-return (TNR) program is the best option for dealing with them.
Morris is looking for local residents to help with another round of the TNR program, which includes help with trapping, transporting, and care of cats prior to being returned to their colony.
The SPCA says it costs about $1000 to spay and neuter a small colony of community cats and there may be up to 30 colonies in Prince Rupert.
Those interested in supporting the program can donate to the Prince Rupert SPCA TNR Fund or contact the branch to volunteer.
