Spay & Neutering is the single most effective toolin controlling the over population of cats anddogs. Studies have proven, without question, thatspay & neutering controls over population morethan euthanizing animals.

If you clear an alley of feral cats by whatevermeans, other animals are drawn to the scents ofthe alley. New animals take over the alley andpopulate even more than before.
