WAG TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN JULY 22 - Orma and Mt. Zion Areas - On Thursday, July 22, 2021, the Welfare of Animals Group [WAG] will be humanely trapping stray and feral cats in the Orma and Mt. Zion areas to have them spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped (the universal sign that a cat has been part of a Trap-Neuter-Return program). We would appreciate if you would not put food out for them on Wednesday, July 21 as we will be trapping on Thursday morning. Once the cats have recovered from anesthesia (at least 24 to 48 hours) we will return them to their exact location. They will be healthier, happier, and not reproducing and fighting. Thank you for your cooperation. So far we have spayed and neutered 529 community cats (299 females and 230 males).

Please keep your personal cats indoors or put a collar on them on Thursday the 22nd. If you have any questions, please call Linda at 304-354-7506.

If you are aware of a feral cat colony in your area, please let us know. Female kittens can begin breeding at four months old, so the best time to spay/neuter a colony is when there are only 5 or 6 cats. Trap-Neuter-Return is provided to county residents at no cost to the caretaker.

Partial funding for Trap-Neuter-Return is provided by The Oakland Foundation, The Bernard McDonough Foundation, and the West Virginia Department of Agriculture.


Reduced cost cat and dog spaying and neutering is available now. The Welfare of Animals Group (WAG) can assist low-income Calhoun County homes with 50% of their pet’s spay/neuter fee.

It is cheaper to spay a pet than to pay the costs of caring for one litter of puppies or kittens.

Donations of dry cat food are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at the Grantsville library.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call 304-354-7042.

Funded in part by The Bernard McDonough Foundation, The Oakland Foundation, and the WV Department of Agriculture.
