The City of Croswell has a cat problem and is now partnering with the Sanilac County Humane Society to solve it in a humane way. Croswell City Administrator Sam Moore said that they have seen an increase in the feral cat population in the city over the last two years.
Kind-hearted residents who feed and care for the animals have become overwhelmed by the numbers. In response to the problem, the City has teamed up with the Sanilac Humane Society to get the cats healthy and rehomed. Moore said that there has been interest from local dairy farmers who are looking for a barn cat or two. Organizers of the project are asking Croswell residents to keep their house pets inside from February 19-22 and to refrain from feeding stray cats during that time period as well. Volunteers will be rounding up the strays during that time. The cats will then be sterilized, given vaccinations, and checked out for health concerns. The cats will be either rehomed by their new “adoptive” owners or returned to where they were found. The effort needs supplies and volunteers. Contact the Sanilac County Humane Society for more information.
