Ways We Help

Cats

While we all love our cats, they can quickly become more than we can handle as they reproduce 4 times a year with often 5 or more kittens per litter. At our local animal control facility, 95% of cats and kittens that enter the facility are euthanized, hundreds every single year.  We would like to combat these numbers with spay and neuter. 

A Feral colony is just as in need of spay and neuter assistance as any cat within our community. TNR, Trap, alter, Release is the way to stop the reproduction of these feral cats. We are committed to helping alleviate the problems associated with pet overpopulation, and alter as many of those pets and ferals that we can. Humans and feral pets can mutually benefit each other. A Feral colony, for example, can eliminate and control an infestation of rat or moles with little or no inconvenience to coexisting human populations.
 

With a Feral Community, ear tipping is very important. Ear-tipping involves surgically removing a small portion of one of a cat’s ears and is a common practice used to help identify those that have already been altered with a quick glance at their ears, which means no new kittens will be born, and that’s a good thing. Ear tipping is done while under general anesthesia while the cat is in for its spay or neuter surgery.

Dogs

As we have all heard, "Dogs are a mans best friend!" We want your best friend to be as healthy as possible and be your best friend for as long as possible. How, you ask? By a simple, common procedure called spay and neuter. Pets who undergo a spay and neuter surgery are not only better off themselves, but they contribute to a healthier pet community too. Pet overpopulation is a serious concern, with more animals entering shelters than there is room to hold them. Sadly, far too many face euthanasia  

Spay and neuter surgery causes a change in your pet’s physical and behavioral make-up. Without so many hormones urging them to mate, they often become calmer, more attentive to you, and avoid many serious medical ailments associated with their reproductive systems. Simply put, spay and neuter surgery helps them live a longer, healthier life with you. Here are just a few of the health benefits we have found for your BFF after surgery:
