Concerned with an increasing number of stray cats in their rural Massachusetts area, the MetroWest Animal Awareness Society is doing something about it.

The society, founded in 2002, is a nonprofit group made up of volunteers from the towns of Marlborough and Hudson, trying to solve their areas feline homelessness problem. The volunteers foster cats in their homes, and before they're adopted, have them spayed or neutered, test them for feline diseases and vaccinate them.

The society will conduct adopt-a-thons for cats this Saturday, April 8, and also Saturday, May 6, both from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those who wish to adopt must fill out an application.

In addition to adoption efforts, the group also keeps an eye on local colonies of feral cats, many of which have been abandoned by owners, and tries to keep their numbers from growing.
