BRATTLEBORO -- "When local farmer Dean Hamilton heard the Windham County Humane Society was spaying and neutering feral cats for free, he knew it presented him with a perfect opportunity to fix his growing problem.
"With 30 house cats and another 30 living in his barn, Hamilton was faced with an impressive but unwanted increase in his local cat population.
"Thankfully for him, the Vermont Humane Federation recently secured a $50,000 grant making it possible for animal lovers to help control the cat population at no cost to them.
"The grant is available to Vermont Humane Society member shelters throughout Vermont, but local shelter was the first to take advantage of the program.
"The only catch, said Annie Guion, executive director of the Windham County Humane Society, is that people have to be willing to trap the cats and bring them in. The Humane Society will provide live traps and cages.
"Guion will continue to host 18 similar clinics every month. Twelve, she said, will be for pets only. Generally the procedure runs between $30 and $40 -- less than a third of what many veterinarians charge -- but cat owners have to be eligible for the assistance.
"I"f they can afford the vet, then we want them to go to the vet," Guion said.
""Most people want to do right by their animals and don’t mind helping us do that," she added. "We’re a nonprofit, and we’re just asking people to pull their own weight while we provide a lot of assistance." "In addition, six TNR (Trap Neuter Release) clinics will be held specially for feral or free-roaming cats.
""People can call and we can set something up," Guion said."
