The Animal Foundation and Best Friends Animal Society announced Tuesday the Community Cats Project, a $1.7 million partnership that aims to spay/neuter 15,000 community cats in Clark County over the next three years.

The organizations said the project brings the organizations one step closer to saving all healthy and treatable animals that enter The Animal Foundation's care by the end of the year 2020.

The plan is to spay/neuter and vaccinate 5,000 cats per year between April 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019. To accomplish this, The Animal Foundation will dedicate one employee while Best Friends will hire two locally based full-time and one locally based part-time employee for oversight and assistance with implementation. Best Friends will also provide two vehicles for trap/neuter/return projects.
