About Us Partnerships
The Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project fosters partnerships with local rescue organizations, grass roots rescuers and local animal care and control agencies. We recognize that our success is based on community partnerships in addition to our successful and affordable spay/neuter program. Combined, these partnerships are integral to ending feline homelessness. A single agency cannot solve the problem, but when several partners work side-by-side, we make great strides toward saving the lives of homeless cats.
Feral Cat Prevention
Years ago, the larger shelters recognized the value of altering pets before adoption and funneled donations into spay/neuter. Individuals and smaller rescue groups that rescue and adopt out kittens simply could not afford to alter before adoption because of the cost of spay/neuter at local veterinarians. At Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project, kittens from all sources have access to spay/neuter before adoption...before breeding.
Rescue groups who used to pay more for spay/neuter after adoption now spend their donations more effectively through collaborating with Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project for spay/neuter before adoption. These groups no longer spend volunteer or staff resource time following up adoptions to verify spay/neuter after adoption. The time and money saved by using low cost spay/neuter before adoption is now funneled into adoptions and medical attention for the animals in their care.
