Region spared from 1000s of kittens thanks to RSPCA

TWEED cat owners flocked to the Murwillumbah Show grounds for the RSPCA's and The Friends of The Pound's desexing program recently.

It was a record breaking effort, Friends of The Pound's president Sonia Trichter was over the moon with the huge numbers that converged on the RSPCA van.

"The residents of the Tweed came with their cats in carriers, boxes, clothes baskets and some just carried them," Mrs Trichter said.

"Some walked to the showground while others drove but most importantly they all made the effort and did the right thing".

In total 93 cats were desexed, which was the most the group had seen.

Mrs Trichter said meaning the message is now getting through to residents about the importance of desexing and responsible cat ownership.

For any information about cat desexing, owners can visit the RSPCA website or Friends of The Pound at friendsofthepound.com/.
