You can help cut down on the stray cat population.

Local shelters are partnering with Pets Alive in Bloomington, to decrease the number of feral cats in the area.
If you know of a cat that doesn't have a home, you can bring it to your area rescue.
All the animals will then be spayed or neutered for free.
Organizers say this is a great start to helping cut back on the number of cats throughout the community.

"A community cat that you may feed in your neighborhood, not necessarily your cat, but it's no one's cat. Those are the cats that unfortunately are doing a lot of breeding and that's where we are getting a lot of realtors every spring and every fall, so we can focus on some of those community cats and get them spayed and neutered then hopefully we can start to get the cat population under control," said Miranda Hay of the Humane Society of Sullivan County.

All cats must be registered with your shelter by April 19.
Those participating are the Spay and Neuter League of Terre Haute, The Humane Society of Sullivan County and Parke/Vermillion, and the Safe Animal Rescue in Greene County.
The cats must be delivered in a live trap.
