The Sutter Animal Services Board of Directors on Monday unanimously approved new strategies
to reduce the use of euthanasia on healthy cats and improve the number of animals adopted at
the Sutter County Animal Shelter.
Beginning September 1, Animal Control officers will stop picking up healthy cats in the field
and will not accept healthy feral cats brought to the shelter.
The shelter staff will continue to pick up unhealthy cats in the field and to accept unhealthy
cats and healthy, adoptable cats that are brought in to the shelter.
The SASA Board’s decision was based on recommendations by Dr. Kate Hurley, the director of the
UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program, which has been hired by SASA to help develop policies
to improve shelter operations, reduce the use of euthanasia and increase adoptions.
