150,000 feral cats in Hartford County alone.
Fact: With 38% of household incomes under $40,000 per year in Hartford, East Hartford, Manchester and New Britain, pet owners just can't afford to have their animals sterilized.

One female cat. 370,000 off-spring within seven years.
Fact: Animals that are not spayed or neutered produce thousands of unwanted, abused or abandoned kittens and puppies each year. In seven years, one female cat and her off-spring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens.
Sadly, there are few options for affordable spay/neuter services in the area, which has led to increasing numbers of stray, feral and abandoned cats, and more and more abandoned dogs.
