What Can Be Done To Reduce Feral Cat Population?

sarahkj: Depending on the time of year, we have a waiting list that can be anywhere from 1 to several months. How long have you been waiting? We also have a program called "Pay for Spay" where you can pay a $15 copay to have the cats fixed during the week at a participating vet--so you don't have to wait for the regular monthly clinics. If that is something you would be interested in, please call your screener and ask for information. There is a group in San Diego that has offered to help pay the $15 copay for those who are unable to, so you might even be able to get it done for free.

What Can Be Done To Reduce Feral Cat Population?

The Feral Cat Coalition is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, all volunteer, organization whose mission is to alleviate the suffering of feral and abandoned cats in San Diego County by controlling their population through spay/neuter. The Feral Cat Coalition works with the public to trap, spay or neuter, and return feral cats back to their colony. This service is provided to the community at no cost by licensed veterinarians and volunteers with one goal in mind: alleviating the suffering of homeless cats and reducing their enormous population.

The Feral Cat Coalition holds monthly clinics where they spay/neuter on average 120-150 cats. Not only are the feral cats spayed/neutered during our clinic, but they are also checked and treated for medical problems, administered a rabies vaccine, antibiotics, Ivermectin (for parasites), and Advantage (for fleas). They have their ears cleaned (and checked for ear mites), their right ear tipped (to identify as spayed/neutered), and they are flea-combed and treated for burrs or matted fur (and overall cleanup).

For more information, visit www.feralcat.com. For spay/neuter reservations, call the Feral Cat Coalition telephone hotline at 619-758-9194.
