LAUGHLIN, NV – May 29, 2015 – Aquarius Casino Resort is helping get the feral cat population along the Laughlin river walk under control.
Volunteers from the Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic in Kingman, AZ, have started to capture the cats and take them to the clinic to have them spayed or neutered, given full wellness exams, rabies shots and other medical attention, if needed.
Aquarius Casino Resort is paying for all the treatments, as well as helping cats and kittens that can be adopted find permanent homes. In fact, some of the felines have been adopted by Aquarius team members and employees of Aquarius’ parent company American Casino & Entertainment Properties. Many of these cats, who cannot be rehabilitated as pets, would also do really well as barn or farm cats to help control a rodent problem.
“Cats on the river walk have been a concern for quite some time,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “By stepping up as a business on the riverfront, we know we can help control the population and assist in getting many of the cats and kittens to a rescue or shelter to be adopted.”
Aquarius is currently working with several shelters and rescues to help arrange transportation to those facilities and with other needs. For example, Aquarius is working with a woman in Bennett, Colorado who is organizing a GoFundMe campaign online to help raise money for the care of the cats.
“We are encouraged by all the people who are rallying with us to do right by these cats,” said Hammond. “Together, we know we’ll make a difference.”
