I Had No Idea!

In response to people taking responsibility to spay and neuter their cats, I had to share my experience..
I live in a rural area in [local county] and had a stray cat that “adopted” me. Not being interested in keeping a cat, I called my local Vet./ Animal Shelter and was told that they were full and could not take in any more strays.
I then inquired about having her “spayed” and learned that after their required vaccinations, pre-surgery blood work, surgery itself and pain medications it would cost over $347.00
I then contacted both [local animal services] and [local animal welfare organization] and learned that you must live in the City of [local city] to utilize their programs.
[local animal clinic], although sympathetic, could only offer their “low cost” neutering if one is on Public Assistance.
I now have a cat that I have resigned myself to care for. I fear that because I do not have the financial means to have her “spayed” , the risk of more kittens being born is a reality,
How sad that our society would rather euthanise, than make it easy and affordable to control the population. Any Suggestions?

  1. Please contact Lollypop Farm about their Feral Cat Spay and Neuter Program. On their website they offer spay/neuter services for $55. They will assist with humane traps to catch the cat. Their phone number is 585-223-1330 x 173.

    Thank you for caring about this cat!
