Community Cat - A feline with no specific owner or home.  A stray or feral cat.

 

  • NO APPOINTMENT FOR SURGERY IS NECESSARY. A COURTESY CALL IS APPRECIATED.

  • For your safety and our staff’s safety, ALL Community cats MUST be delivered in a humane trap.  If the wild or semi friendly cat is brought in for surgery in any other carrier, our staff must transfer the animal prior to surgery. A $15.00 transfer fee will be charged for this service.

  • Community cats are accepted for surgery during regular business hours.

  • Community cats will have their ears tipped.  This is a universal indication to other TNR participants that this cat has already been altered and that the cat, if trapped, should be released.  Full surgical rates apply if ear tip is declined.

  • Community cats will also receive a rabies vaccination at no additional charge.

  • Surgery will be performed, either same day or following day, dependent upon the time the animal arrives at the clinic and our surgery load.

  • Community cats will stay the night after their surgery in the clinic to give them time to rest and remain quiet. 

  • They will have food and water provided, as well as be kept warm/cool, clean and dry.

  • Our staff will call you to let you know when to pick up the wild cat and taken to their natural habitat and released.

 

Humane Traps are available at AlterClinic.  A $35.00 fully refundable deposit is required. Donations to cover administrative costs would be appreciated. 

 Please call to reserve one.
