Cost to desex cats dropped

IN A bid to combat the overpopulation of cats on the Fraser Coast, a discounted rate for desexing is being offered to residents who are eligible.

Acting Mayor George Seymour said about 50 cats had been abandoned at the Hervey Bay pound in the past month.

He said it was due to more kittens being born than there were loving homes for them to go to.
