RCHS can help with feral cats

Do you have feral cats near your home or workplace? Do you see them when you’re out, especially at night? Are you currently feeding feral cats? If so, the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) can help. RCHS is working with citizens around the county where feral cats are living on a population control program called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), in which feral cats are humanely trapped, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and sterilized. Young kittens may be adopted into homes and the other healthy cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers. To learn more about our Free Roaming Cats and TNR program, please contact the Adoption Center at 483-6700 or
