A National Crisis

There is a feral cat crisis in the United States. Millions of cats are homeless on the streets, struggling to survive. This is largely in part due to lack of proper care (such as spaying and neutering).

The populations have exploded to the point that they are co-mingling with domestic cats, spreading diseases and creating other preventable issues.
