vermillion's feral cat population and eventually a better solution. sot: "i hope that this leads to a trap neuter return program and i think it's a community problem and i think with a whole community effort. it's entirely possible and we can solve this whole problem. trap neuter programs are common through out the u.s. stray cats get ught ... neutered and the properly vavainated before releasing them back into their respective colony. experts agree ... that shelter is only part of the solution. " they may be the solution to giving these animals shelter but a good program is a trap- neuter-release program. they should all be fixed otherwise getting a cat colony started you are just going to be reproducing and that colony is going to turn into huge numbers of cats in a relatively short period of time." howard's shelter is right next to a domino's pizza and some seem to like that ... "there is always cats out here ... and there is even a regular ... they call him domino." and while i haven't identified domino yet ... he is sure to come back to his shelter. tag: and howard has been getting a lot of positive feedback from the community ... pointing her to certain hotspots and connecting her with likemindnd organizations.s. she hopes that people will join her in creating more shelters. reporting in studio ... lukas voss ... abc9 news.
