(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Humane Society of Utah says there's a disturbing rise in the number of homeless cats.
They've taken in about 20 percent more cats and kittens this year from January to the end of September than they did in the same period last year.
And the Humane Society wants to remind folks to help control the pet population.
The director of the organization says the public might have seen encouraging results before and stopped having their pets spayed or neutered.
However, the number of dogs the Humane Society has taken in has actually gone down by almost two percent.
