DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is working to get the stray cat population under control.
It held a seminar Tuesday evening to discuss possible solutions to the problem.
Organizers say an estimated 85,000 stray cats roam the streets in Montgomery County.
National experts talked about alternative ways to control the population without resorting to euthanasia.
"What we primarily focus on is using the same money we would invest on taking them and euthanizing them, we invest in the community to spay and neuter them and reduce their populations over time," said Jon Cicirelli, San Jose Animal Care and Services.
"For the most part, they just mind their own business, go about their ways, we would like to not have kittens born, more kittens brought into the mix, so we've been practicing trap and release for a few years now, trap neuter and release," said Teresa Winter, Dayton.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton says it has so many cats that it is unable to shelter any more right now.
