Lynchburg's cat population is growing a little too fast, but that trend could slow down thanks to an effort that's underway this weekend.
The Lynchburg Humane Society is spaying and neutering stray cats for free.
With the help of South Central Spay/Neuter Clinic, 50 cats are getting fixed and receiving a free rabies shot.
"If they are not fixed, there's a potential for overpopulation explosion," said Lynda-Sue Napier, Executive Director of South Central Spay/Neuter Clinic. "In our service area, we have over 62,000 feral and free roaming cats."
Lynchburg's Humane Society is able to do this work with the help of a national grant from PetSmart.
At least three other free spay/neuter clinics will be held later this fall. For more information, click here.
