FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. -- The NC State Mobile Vet Clinic aims to spay and neuter 50 feral cats in Forsyth County Saturday and Sunday. 

"The feral cat problem in this community is actually quite large," Khristin Schachtschneider, president of Forgotten Felines of Forsyth said. 

She says she knows of at least 1,500 locations where feral cats are living. The cat overpopulation leads to crowding at animal shelters. 



"Too many animals are euthanized in our shelters due to pet overpopulation. Spaying and neutering is the best way to curb the pet overpopulation problem," Sheila Warren, founder of Humane Solutions Spay Neuter Program said. 

Schachtschneider says while her organization holds monthly clinics, this is a great time of year for N.C. State to help out. 

"Kitten season is actually probably starting a little early this year. Any time of the year is a good time to do it, but this time of year the impact will be a little greater," she said.
