Free Spay/Neuter for Homeless Cats
FixNation can help! We provide free spay/neuter services for homeless stray and feral cats.
FixNation supports Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR for short. TNR is a community-based program where concerned citizens humanely trap feral cats, have them spayed or neutered, and then return them to the exact location where they were trapped so they can be cared for and live out their natural lives. We loan out humane traps for free to the public, plus we provide training on how to properly and safely TNR. We make it as easy for you as possible to help the homeless cats in your neighborhood.
Feral services includes:
Under our “Free Feral Program,” all homeless cats who will be eartipped for identification purposes will receive the following free services at the time of surgery:
- Spay or neuter surgery
- Physical exam
- Rabies vaccine
- Feline distemper vaccine (FVRCP)
- For Flea Treatment we now use Frontline, but may use Revolution if prescribed by the attending veterinarian.
- Pain medication
- Droncit injection – for tapeworms, only as needed
- Limited medical treatment
- Lots of TLC!
The eartip is the universal symbol that an outdoor or free-roaming cat has been fixed. It is done while the cat is under anesthesia, is relatively painless for the cat, and does not significantly alter their beauty. We also go one step further and apply a bit of pain medication paste to the freshly tipped ear, to make it even more comfortable for the cat.
Let’s face it, cats are part of our community. Both the ones who call the outdoors their home and the ones who live inside our houses. TNR starts with people just like you. When you decide to take action to help the cats within our community, you help to build a better community for all.
