In the State of New York, cats are considered free roaming animals and, as such, are not labeled as "stray" animals. As a result, the Shelter does not pick up stray cats.
The Town does not set a limit to the number of cats a household can own. The Shelter acknowledges and supports Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) programs. Currently, there is a low cost TNR program for town residents and businesses caring for feral cats. For more information, call the Animal Shelter at (631) 643-9270.
