DEP
  How to be Stormwater Smart
  Click Here for more information on stormwater runoff pollution from the PA DEP Buearu of Clean Water.
Urban stormwater runoff pollution is a problem that has no boundaries, and neither does the solution! While the DEP Bureau of Clean Water works with the counties, towns and other municipalities, construction firms, and industries to help them follow regulations to reduce stormwter runoff, Pennsylvania residents can also do their part to reduce stormwater runoff.
Trap, Neuter, Return of Feral & Strays
Please be aware of a service available to North Apollo residents:
If you know of any feral or stray cats that need to be trapped, neutered and released (TNR), please contact Robin Patton at 412-977-8094.
We are a small group that trap feral & stray cats and take them to an organization called Homeless Cat Management Team in Tarentum to be spayed or neutered. In addition, they are given a rabies shot and treated for fleas and ear mites if needed. The cat is held overnight, and then brought back to where it was trapped and released.  This service is available for only feral and stray cats.
      We have already done 22 cats in North Apollo on Stoops Ct. Since this our busy time of year, it may be awhile, but be assured, we will get you on the list at Homeless Cat Management Team.
     We would appreciate any donation at the time of trapping. Donations need to be made to Robin Patton because we in turn make payment to Homeless Cat Management Team at time of service. With additional monies, we would also be able to give each cat a distemper immunization to prevent 5 specific diseases.
