Greenwood County Council on Tuesday approved $3,000 for a trap-spay-neuter pilot program, named Project Kangaroo, to help reduce the feral cat population in Greenwood.

The Humane Society of Greenwood will administer the program beginning immediately. The goal is to reduce the feral cat population using a new program known as trap-neuter-release. The feral cats are trapped, neutered or spayed, then returned to the place where they were living. The program has experienced in other areas of the U.S. with large feral cat populations, according to HSOG executive director Karen Pettay.

Pettay told council that the program would begin immediately upon the approval of council.

County manager Toby Chappell told council that the money for the program would come from money set aside, about $25,000, for special county projects.

The location for Project Kangaroo is inside the City of Greenwood. Pettay said she has spoken with businesses in the area and the businesses welcomed and appreciated the effort to reduce the feral cat population. Pettay said approximately 30 cats or kittens live in the area and have at least two caretakers. The cats which are trapped, neutered and released will be tagged so HSOG can keep track of which ones have been through the program, Pettay said.
