Local Shelter Helping Fix Cambridge Stray Cat Problem

Posted:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Baywater Animal Rescue will use grant money to help rid the city of Cambridge of stray cats.

"We have grant money available to pay for spay/neuter surgery of free roaming cats and there is also another clinic located in Secretary, and between the two of us we can get these cats spayed and neutered," said Baywater Animal Rescue Executive Director Suzette Stitely.

Stitely said spaying and neutering will control the amount of loose cats, but not completely solve the problem. She explained, "The cats won't solve the problem, they will come back. There is a food source there, someone is feeding them. There is a reason they are there, at least when you get them fixed, the numbers won't go up."

Joe Dibartolomeo of Cambridge said it took a while, but he is glad the problem is being addressed.

"It's about time because it's been well over a year since I have been trying to get somebody to do something," he said. "It's nowhere near as bad as last year- there had to be 30 or so cats running around."

The animal shelter still needs the public's help.

"We need people to call us when we need help," Stitely said. "We don't always have grant money available but when we do, we want to use it to help the community."

Baywater Animal Rescue said it is hoping to be able to make a difference as early as December.
