Animal Defense League of Arizona'

PHOENIX, ARIZONA (KPHO Phoenix) - The Animal Defense League of Arizona's Spay Neuter Hotline received the first installment of a two-year grant from PetSmart Charities to sterilize 3,000 feral cats in West Phoenix.

The $112,550 grant will specifically target feral cats in the 85019 zip code. The ADLA said the money will help to spay or neuter about 70 percent of the stray cats in the area.

"We are excited to offer targeted Trap-Neuter-Return for neighborhoods in 85019," said ADLA President Stephanie Nichols-Young. "In addition to helping homeless cats and communities, this grant will help us learn more about Phoenix street cats so we can be more effective in the future."

The Spay Neuter Hotline said it offers its Trap-Neuter-Return program throughout Maricopa County to assist people who want to stop the birth of homeless kittens. Program assistance will be made available to residents and businesses in the target area. The ADLA said the cats will be humanely trapped, spayed and neutered, ear-tipped and returned.

The ADLA said the Trap-Neuter-Return program offers a viable solution to stabilize the homeless cat population by reducing the exponential reproduction of cats on the streets. The ADLA also said they expect to see a decrease in the number of cats and kittens living on the streets in the target area and fewer turned into local shelters.
