Connecticut Department of Agriculture Animal Population Control Program

Cat Tales received a grant as part of the Feral Cat Grant Program for FY13 and 14. Funding has been made available due to P.A. No. 07-105; titled An Act Concerning the Expansion of the Animal Population Control Program which states that CT DOAG will dedicate up to 10% of APCP income to vaccinate and sterilize feral cats (70% of the program’s income comes from a dog license surcharge).
