city hopes Humane Ohio can implement its ‘trap, neuter, return' program, where
the organization gathers the felines, spays or neuters them, and returns them
to the neighborhood. According to Humane Ohio's marketing director Jill

only environment suitable for feral and wild cats is outdoors," Borkowski said.
"They're euthanized in shelters because they are not considered adoptable, but
this way, they are no longer reproducing and the free-roaming cat population in
your neighborhood…is immediately stabilized."
public services director says about $1,500 will be used for the pilot program,
which will begin in about three weeks.
Ohio plans to go door-to-door in the neighborhood to talk to resident and give
advice on how to keep the cats out of their yards.
