February 27th is World Spay Day, an international day to encourage the spaying and neutering of companion animals. Spaying or neutering a cat is the simplest and most effective way a person can help prevent cat overpopulation. Alley Cat Rescue (ACR) offers a Cheapfix clinic to members of the public to sterilize and provide a rabies vaccination for cats. The Cheapfix clinic provides a low-cost option for people who want to trap-neuter-return feral cats or have their companion animal sterilized.
Kitten season is around the corner and ACR has ramped up its clinic from once a month to once a week in preparation. Spring is referred to as “kitten season” because of the high influx of kittens brought into shelters during this season. This intake follows the cats’ breeding cycle beginning in March in the Western Hemisphere. Many kittens are born outside to feral cats and can face euthanasia when brought to local shelters. Low-cost clinics prevent kittens from being born to an uncertain fate.
In addition to ACR’s once a week Cheapfix clinics, we will also be offering a clinic on February 27th to spay/neuter 15 cats in honor of World Spay Day. The fee has been reduced to $20 for a spay/neuter surgery and rabies vaccination for a feral cat.
We rely on compassionate people such as yourself to continue to offer these services. Get involved on World Spay Day and donate to ACR here to help us continue to offer these vital services!
Alley Cat Rescue is leading in the way in promoting humane and compassionate care for ALL cats.
