The Butler County Humane Society (BCHS) will keep its commitment to individuals already promised help with getting feral cat colonies on their properties spayed and neutered by the Alabama Animal Alliance through their Trap/Neuter/Release Program.

“This has been a great success here. Unfortunately, the AAA has run out of grant monies and won’t receive additional monies until next year at the earliest. So we will keep our promise to those we already committed to and cover the costs for up to 30 cats,” said BCHS president Herbert Morton.

The BCHS is also working with Dr. Josh Gardner of Clay Hill Animal Clinic to assist a limited number of local citizens with low incomes in getting their animals spayed/neutered each month.

“We will be working with local agencies, ministers and others to identify those who could use our assistance and we very much appreciate Dr. Gardner’s working with us on this,” Morton said.

“Our commitment is to get as many animals spayed and neutered as possible, cutting down on the homeless animal overpopulation and making it a happier, healthier community for us all.”
