This weekend's Kitten Roundup is aimed at reducing the feral cat population

Langley roundup collects kittens and cats

A Langley shelter is taking unwanted kittens Saturday.

Bring a kitten, get a voucher to spay or neuter your adult cat.

That’s the pitch for this year’s Kitten Roundup on Saturday, May 28 at Langley’s Patti Dale Animal Shelter, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Langley Animal Protection Society will take in kittens six months and younger, mother cats, and moms-to-be. Cat owners can text the kittens’ location to LAPS Kitten Roundup Hotline at 604-690-5232 and a team will swing by to pick them up.

The roundup is aimed at reducing the feral cat population, thought to be as many as 22,000 cats. They produce an estimated 80,000 kittens every year, with a very high mortality rate.

Throughout the day, LAPS will be broadcasting kitten intake exams, talking about spay/neuter programs, and answering questions live on the web at livestream.com/accounts/14083503/Roundup.
