 FREE SPAY/NEUTER CAT MONTH

            WHEREAS, there has been an alarming increase in the number of feral cats in Fauquier County; and

            WHEREAS, the number of feral cats far exceeds the capacity of local shelters and often sadly results in euthanasia; and

            WHEREAS, it is the SPCA’s intent to collect upwards of 50 feral cats at a time, test, sterilize and vaccinate them for rabies, and then transport them back and release them; and

            WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors recognizes this effort as a humane and proactive initiative; now, therefore, be it

            PROCLAIMED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 13th day of December 2007, That the Fauquier SPCA be, and is hereby, recognized and commended for Free Spay/Neuter Cat Month.
