The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA has many events throughout the year geared towards alleviating our country’s pet overpopulation problem, not least of which are the feral cat spay/neuter events that are part of the CASPCA’s barn cat adoption and TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) programs in cooperation with Voices for Animals. The next two TNR events will be held at the CASPCA on February 26th and March 19th, 2011. Please visit either the CASPCA TNR web page or Voices for Animals’ website for more information about how to become a participant of this life-saving, all volunteer-driven and FREE program.
With kitten season just around the corner, the CASPCA has gone one better this February by offering free spay/neuter services for your favorite house cats too. The program is available to all middle and lower income families in Albemarle County and is convenient and easy to access. You can drop by the facility to fill out an application or use their easy online application and submit your information with the click of a button. This program will be offered all of February and the CASPCA will do its best to schedule Mr. and Ms. Fuzzynickers’ procedure for a day and time that is convenient for you. Remember, all it takes is one accidental outdoor adventure for your cat to become a parent, and if you’re favorite feline is of the indoor/outdoor variety, the need to spay or neuter becomes even more urgent.
The Humane Society of the United States’ and Humane Society International are also making the effort of having your dog or cat spayed/neutered a whole lot easier and even fun with this years’ annual Spay Day.
