TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Cash to save cats - that is what one local organization hopes to do with a new program.

Talks are in the works to launch a community cat program to control feral cats in Pima County.

The Best friends Animal Society is offering to bring the $1.5 million program here. The goal is to push Pima Animal Care Center's shelter into 'no-kill' territory.

Best Friends Animal Society hopes to reduce the number of cats put down by at least 25 percent in the first year alone.

For those interested in the community cat program there will be a town hall type forum happening at the Riverpark Inn (350 S. Freeway, Tucson) on Wednesday, July 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
