Unwanted Kitten Roundup

LAPS KITTEN ROUNDUP Langley Animal Protection Society We rescue boxes of unwanted kittens from dumpsters and parks every year. After a third litter came in this year, we decided enough was enough. We asked our community to bring us their unwanted kittens, moms, and moms-to-be. No fees, no questions, and no judgement. We set up a hotline so people could send a text and get unwanted kittens picked up. We prepared to give out as many free spay/neuter vouchers as were needed. We hoped to spread the message that the best way to avoid unwanted kittens is to spay and neuter your cats, and we hoped to prove something this crazy can actually work, in case other shelters are interested.
