DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton community is trying to figure out how to deal with feral cats.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton held the first of two informational meetings Thursday night.
The group is teaming up with the city to try to control the problem.
They want to trap the animals to neuter and vaccinate them before releasing them.
“Our need right now is to find people who are interested and passionate enough, who are citizens within the City of Dayton to help us identify areas where there are problems and to maybe get involved in other ways,” said Brian Weltge, Humane Society of Greater Dayton.
There is an estimated 9,000 feral cats roaming the streets.
The next informational session is Friday morning at the Lohrey Community Center at 9:00 a.m.
