[ARCHIVED] Feral cat strategies presentation and discussion on November 15th

Shelter Veterinarian Dr. Kate Hurley will talk about the best tactics for addressing outdoor cats from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, November 15th at the County Commission Chambers, 2100 E. Walt Williams Drive in Pahrump.

Dr. Hurley has tried almost every method of cat management herself, in her prior job as an animal control officer, and now as part of her work as a veterinarian and director of the Koret Shelter Medicine program at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

 She will discuss feline welfare, protection of public health and wildlife, and mitigation of nuisance and aesthetic issues, and will share data and information about successful and unsuccessful strategies.

 Dr. Hurley will also answer questions after the presentation. Citizens of Nye County, animal control staff and management, and county/city officials are all welcome to attend this free presentation. Whether you love cats or are not a fan of outdoor cats, you will not want to miss this presentation.

The 90-minute meeting will start at 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada is sponsoring the event.
