To help serve the community and cut back on the feral cat population, Robinson Tract Community Club has launched a new spay and neuter project that is free for citizens of Robinson Tract.

Cecil King said the club is always looking for ways it can help the community, so it is joining with Judith Peele of the Wild and Feral organization to help reduce the number of new litters born to feral cats.

Under the agreement, the club will pay $5 for each cat to be spayed or neutered and Wild and Feral will pay the remaining of the cost. The surgeries are performed through Mountain View Humane Society in Christiansburg.

King said the club has traps it can loan to Tract residents to catch the feral felines. The group recently caught 29 cats that were to be returned to the community Tuesday.

The next spay/neuter clinics will be held in January. Contact King at 239-4720 for dates or more information.
