The city has set aside $15,000 in hope of stabilizing the homeless cat population in the city.

YONKERS - There's now a new push by the city of Yonkers to stop the abuse of homeless cats.

The city has set aside $15,000 to provide "trap, neuter and release" efforts.

Animal experts say the campaign would stabilize the homeless cat population in the city.

The push comes after a shocking case of animal cruelty in which more than 25 cats, in shopping bags, were found dangling from trees in April.
