Facebook: C5

Community Cat Coalition of Clark County (AKA C5) made the announcement Sunday on their Facebook page that this sweet girl was scheduled for spaying at Heaven Can Wait. C5 says the program has cut the shelter euthanasia rate by 90 percent.

In an interview with Las Vegas Now, Keith Williams, President and Director of the C5 stated

 “It’s an amazing feeling. We started out in 2009, a small handful of people sitting around our living room saying wouldn’t it be great if we could really make a difference here.”

Approximately 50 volunteers work to trap the feral cats in the city. The cats are provided veterinary care and are spayed/neutered. This has gotten the population down. Experts (no source was given on this ) say there are approximately 200,000 feral cats living in the city.

Although it’s a battle to reduce the feral cat population anywhere, with 35,000 cats helped they’re preventing a lot of unwanted kittens from being born.
