[excerpt]

Since the beginning of 2001, a feral cat neutering program has been run at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), University of Prince Edward Island, in cooperation with the Cat Action Team (CAT), a local non-profit volunteer organization whose primary goal is to trap, neuter, and release feral cats on Prince Edward Island (PEI). They have been doing this work in conjunction with the AVC and 5 other privately owned veterinary clinics on PEI for the last 10 years
