On Sunday, September 26, the Clydey Foundation together with the Cat Network, will join forces to help alleviate the feral cat problems on Miami Beach. The plan is to aggressively spay and neuter 80 cats so they can be at a manageable level.
Feral cats have been overpopulating Miami Beach for decades. The problem goes back to 1912 when one of the city's developers brought in cats to control the rat problem that existed at the time.
According to the Clydey Foundation, a manageable level can be accomplished in less than ten years without killing any animals. "The female cats, once you spay them, will not have litters of kittens. Then, we can fix the problem over time," said Sharon Jacobson, who founded the Clydey Foundation.
for this effort includes $20,000 from Chase Bank and $5000 from the City of
Miami Beach. The Clydey Foundation needs volunteers and doctors who are willing
to donate their time to spay and neuter the stray cats. Additional
donations are still needed for this ambitious project at theclydeyfoundation.org .
