Clinic works to ease feral cat problem in Yonkers

A clinic in Yonkers is trying to help control the feral cat population and prevent the spread of diseases like rabies.

The American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) teamed up with the Friends of Yonkers Animal Shelter on Sunday to host a spay and neuter clinic at the Nodine Community Center.

Rescuers went out into the community and found homeless wild cats and provided spay and neutering procedures and a rabies vaccination.

The group plans on continuing these events either monthly or bi-monthly in the future. It is also planning to hold a low-cost clinic for pit bulls.
