LEWISTON — The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society and Alley Cats LA will be accepting donations for their fifth annual yard sale scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society.

All donated items must be in salable and clean condition and delivered to the shelter on either Thursday, Aug. 7, or Friday, Aug. 8, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. No clothing, appliances or large pieces of furniture, please. For additional drop-off information or questions, contact Melanie Bolduc at 784-1553.

Sponsored by the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, Alley Cats of LA is a public group open to all individuals who know of/or are concerned about feral cats in need of assistance in the community. Special emphasis is placed upon a coordinated Trap-Neuter-Release Program, aimed at reducing the feral cat populations.

The goal of the TNR Program is to improve the quality of life for the homeless cats, while reducing their numbers by attrition. After the cats are sterilized and vaccinated, volunteer caretakers continue to feed the population, but the cats are no longer able to reproduce. In addition to saving lives, nuisance behaviors and citizen complaints will be reduced or eliminated and costs to municipalities decrease.
