I have lived in Duluth for 22 years and only moved to Norcross 2 years ago... the apartment where I live, there are 5 little kittens that were born to our little community and I am wondering if we can get the same/similar service for these adorable little kittens. I have been feeding them for the past week or so and one has become very friendly and affectionate, but the others won't let me get anywhere near them. Please advise me on what I can do for them so they don't continue to make more homeless kittens!

Ms. Durand, Thank you for your comment. As you can see, there is a critical need for community involvement to help reduce the number of feral/free roaming cats. Our grant only covers cats in Duluth, but please don't hesitate to give us a call. We have traps we can loan you, we can advise you on how to (trap-neuter-return) and we are one of the very few low cost spay/neuter clinics. Please call our office at: 678-561-FIX1 (3491) and we will do everything we can to assist you. Please mention you saw the story posted on the Duluth Patch. Thank you, Planned PEThood of GA
