Anyone Thinking What We're Thinking?
Downtown declining. "Main Street" imploding. Property taxes exploding. Brownfields encroaching. Illegal accessory apartments proliferating. Roadways crumbling. Planning procrastinated. Zoning abrogated. [Shall we go on?]
And all Kate Murray, the Stuporvisor of the Town of Hempstead, can come up with is a day to spay and neuter feral cats?
Of course, its all about keeping the name in the news, whether the subject matter is goats, clams, or now, cats.
How prophetic. "Town of Hempstead and Last Hope Join Together."
Hopeless in Hempstead is more like it!
Spaying? Neutering? Anyone?

Town of Hempstead And Last Hope Join Together To Host First Spay/Neuter Day For Feral Cats
Many feral cats that are not spayed or neutered wander from place to place throughout our region. The nomadic wandering has resulted in "pockets" of feral cat overpopulation. That's why Supervisor Kate Murray and Last Hope Animal Rescue have joined together to offer the first spay/neuter day for feral cats on Sunday, October 25, 2009 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter.
"Overpopulation of feral cats is a serious problem," stated Supervisor Murray. "Hempstead Town is pleased to unite with Last Hope to provide this vital service for free."Residents of the town can bring up to five feral cats for free spay/neuter. For the safety of all participants we ask that cats be brought in carriers. Residents are encouraged to schedule an appointment for the feral cats that they plan to bring to the program. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited and proof of residency will be required.

"This is such a great program to help control our feral cat population in the town," concluded Supervisor Murray. "I urge every resident who cares about feral cats to take advantage of this unique opportunity."
