Project Humane Polo offering winter shelters for the town's feral cats

POLO– Project Humane Polo volunteers are trying to make this winter a little more tolerable for feral cats by making insulated shelters.

Anyone in Polo who cares for feral cats and could use a shelter or two, or who would like to donate to the cause, can contact them at projecthumanepolo@gmail.com or 815-627-6508.

Project Humane Polo also has partnered with Happy Tails Humane Society in Rock Falls to provide spay and neutering services and veterinary care for $32 per cat.

In September, the City Council passed an ordinance that limits how many cats can be owned and when they can be fed.

In October, citing liability concerns, the council voted against partnering with Project Humane to create a trap, neuter and release program to curb the feral cat population, but said it would refer citizens to the organization.
