Programs to find homes for hundreds of cats and kittens in Fayette County, and to reduce the stray population, are in danger of closing for a lack of volunteers.

The Fayette Humane Society, which works in partnership with the county animal shelter and local pet stores, is holding two town hall meetings to recruit volunteers for its adoption and spay/neuter programs. The first will be held 5-7:30 p.m. on Feb. 7 at the Peachtree City Library, 201 Willowbend Road; the second will be 9 a.m.-noon on Feb. 9 at Inman United Methodist Church, 151 Hills Bridge Road in Fayetteville.

FHS needs people to work individually or in teams to answer phone calls, deliver food and litter, transport cats, post on social media, maintain computer records, manage feral colonies and provide temporary homes.
