She told about the SPCA, which has no shelter, but uses the foster home model and has a “no kill” philosophy.

The SPCA is partnering with the city of Fulton to address the excessive cats in the city that roam without a home.

This is a work in progress that involves educating and getting volunteers to help catch the cats so they can be assessed for a foster home placement and provided proper medical care.

The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meeting every Friday at 7 a.m. at Mimi’s.
