If your neighbor allows their cat out unfixed they are costing taxpayers dollars
due to the 2-3 litters a year that Male cat is producing with abandoned unfixed
females in Pilsen. Kittens and Mothers are being dumped at Chicago Animal Care and Control daily. Since most Chicago residents care not about the misery I can guarantee you it is costing YOU, the taxpayers every hour at Chicago Animal Care and Control. This is a crime and animal abuse. I will be posting photos of dead litters , kittens abandoned by undernourished mothers who are very ill and dying. This cruelty,in plain sight, is caused by Pilsen residents allowing unfixed cats outdoors. Mothers and litters are being put down/ killed everyday at Animal Care and Control due to residents inhumane attitudes. Be vigilant on your block please. Contact PAWS Chicago or Tree House in Bucktown for free and low cost s/n and for trap rental to TRAP NEUTER RETURN cats in your area. Thank you
