ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - In a story May 1 about Anchorage feral cats, The Associated Press reported erroneously the name of a nonprofit group that wants to neuter feral cats to bring their numbers down. The organization is called Mojo’s Hope, not Mojo’s Help.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Group wants to stem Anchorage feral cat population

Nonprofit animal group wants to spay, neuter Anchorage feral cats to bring numbers down

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A nonprofit animal group is campaigning to lower the number of feral cats in Anchorage by catching them, spaying or neutering them, then returning them to the streets.

KTUU (https://is.gd/hoDjUG) says the group behind the effort is called Mojo’s Hope, which was co-founded by Shannon Basner.

The group typically helps special-needs pets like her dog Mojo, which used a wheelchair.

Basner says feral cats also are special-needs animals because of their avoidance of human interaction.

Her group is seeking to have a city law changed to allow spaying and neutering of feral cats.

The Anchorage Animal Control Board has heard the group’s idea, but hasn’t taken a stance on the issue.
