Local animal officials held a meeting Monday about a program that's aimed at reducing the number of feral cats around Kern County.

The Community Cat Program was created out of a partnership between local animal care officials and the Best Friends Animal Society.

During the meeting, the group laid out their plans that include things such as working with the Bakersfield Animal Care Facility to trap, neuter and return as many cats as they can.

They will also hire additional people to help out the community program.

Their goal is to spay at least 6,000 cats by the year 2020.
