SNAP helps control feral cat colonies in Columbia

Christina McCullen and her husband, Atish Sen, have been volunteering for the SNAP program for more than three and a half years by caring for four colonies of feral cats that live in Columbia. Best Friends Animal Society estimates that there are about 33,270 feral cats living in Columbia. SNAP practices trap-neuter-return, which keeps the colonies of feral cats from growing, and they defend their territory keeping other stray cats from forming new colonies in that area.
