Pettay: TNR trial successful
Brian King

The Humane Society of Greenwood’s recent trial run of a trap-neuter-return program was a huge success, HSOG executive director Karen Pettay said Tuesday at Greenwood County Council’s administration and finance committee meeting.

The program, called Project Kangaroo, began in January of this year when council approved $3,000 for the program. HSOG volunteers and staff trapped about 40 feral cats at undisclosed locations in Greenwood County. The total cost to trap, spay or neuter the cats and return them was about $1,500. The cost to house the same number of cats at the shelter is about $1,800, Pettay said.

Pettay told council that HSOG intended to continue the TNR program at other locations, using the remainder of the budget allocated by council for the program. She also noted how much more well-behaved the cats in the program are after being spayed or neutered. Pettay’s goal is to reduce the feral cat population through an ongoing and viable TNR program in addition to educating the community about the efficacy of a TNR program versus trapping, housing the cats at the shelter, then euthanizing them.
