Borough considers neuter-and-release program for cats

Barrington is seeking residents to take part in a new program to catch feral cats in the community in order to have them neutered before releasing the animal in an area away from where it was found, according to a report in the latest Barrington’s On Track publication.

feral cat“This will drastically reduce the amount of cats,” Councilwoman Maureen Bergeron wrote, noting the program involves catching the animals, neutering them and clipping their ear to mark them before they are released.

Bergeron asks residents interested in helping to contact her at mbergeron@barringtonboro.com or by calling 856-547-8585.

Bergeron also noted in the publication that about 700 cats and dogs are believed to be owned as pets in the borough, but only about one-quarter of them are properly licensed.

    Neutered feral cats are just as big a problem. They spread disease and kill surrounding small wildlife. Trap and euthanize is the only solution to this problem.
