Glady Bell chairs the Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society annual general meeting at Moose Jaw Public Library on Sunday, March 18, 2012

Feral cats are about to get spayed and neutered in the Friendly City.

The Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society (SCRAPS) is going to begin capturing feral cats in the commercial and residential portions of the community this spring, having the animals ‘fixed’ before releasing them back into the urban wilds with access to shelter available.

The 2012 year for SCRAPS, the first year the organization would be actively trapping wild felines, began with the non-profit organization’s annual general meeting at Moose Jaw Public Library on Sunday.

“We’re going to start this year and see what we can get done,” SCRAPS founder and board president Glady Bell told the Times-Herald just prior to Sunday’s meeting.
