Stopping the Cycle - Trap / Neuter / Release Program
Susquehanna Township is partnered with Steelton Community Cats (SCC) in a local Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program. "Stopping The Cycle" is the SCC's campaign to humanely reduce the overpopulation of feral and free-roaming cats. It provides a "NO-KILL" Population Control Service, saving taxpayers' money, saving cats' lives, and doing the best possible for feral and free-roaming cats - not euthanizing them but allowing the cats to live out their lives in the environment they know and love.
SCC provides services such:
- Assistance with trapping feral cats
- Monthly 2-day surgery clinics (held on a Thursday and Friday)
- Post-surgery care
- Additional medical care, as needed
