ROCK SPRINGS — The Rock Springs Companion Animal Committee is starting a “working cat” program in Sweetwater County. Committee Vice President Dorothy Savage said the program will start immediately and would be a great resource for businesses experiencing problems with rodents or interested in saving a cat.
“They’re really overwhelmed at Animal Control,” Savage said. “Cats are great rodent deterrents; even the odor of a cat on the premises is enough to scare rodents away.”
Savage said the Companion Animal Committee came up with the idea after reading about similar programs that have reported great success.
Anyone interested in participating should contact Rock Springs Animal Control at 307-352-1455. Cats can be adopted for a fee of $20. The cats will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and licensed upon adoption.
