Prevent a Litter (PALS) of Central Texas will hold a workshop on the Trap, Neuter, Return, Maintain (TNRM) method for the management of the free-roaming stray cat population Saturday at the San Marcos Public Library, 625 East Hopkins Street, from 10 a.m.-noon.
The event will be held in the library’s small conference room. An additional workshop will be conducted on March 2 from 6-8 p.m.
PALS said the TNRM method reduces the stray cat population in a way that’s more humane than killing them. The average cost of sterilization is $50 while the average cost of an animal to be impounded and euthanized costs $110 taxpayer dollars.
The TNRM workshop will explain the details of the loan of traps, low-cost spay/neuter options and recovery steps after the surgery. The event will also describe how to solve cat nuisance problems and how to safely manage outdoor cat populations.
Attendees are asked to RSVP to the planners of the event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling PALS at (512) 754-PALS (press 5 to leave a message).Email | Print
