Due to the high volume of requests, ARC will no longer be taking walk-in appointments for feral cats. All TNVR surgeries will be by appointment only. Appointments must be booked directly through the link above. Please be prepared to book appointments up to several weeks in advance. Each cat must be brought to the clinic in a humane live trap with only one cat per trap.
Each cat will receive a spay/neuter surgery, a rabies vaccine, an FVRCP vaccine, an Ivermectin injection, and an ear tip. Ear-tipping is the surgical removal of the tip of the cat’s ear while they are under sedation for their spay/neuter surgery. The ear tip is the nationally recognized standard for signifying that a community cat has been sterilized.
Trappers will be asked to pick up the cat the day after their surgery between 10am and 12pm.
We offer free trap rentals at our clinic if you do not have a trap available. Come to the clinic to pick up traps and find out more or give us a call at 941.957.1955.
Feral cats are cats which have been abandoned by owners, lost or born fending for themselves. Offspring of those cats born in the wild are also feral. But feral is a behavioral characteristic. A cat can be feral at one point of its life and not another. Sometimes called “community cats” or "free range cats” some can become quite friendly with human contact.
Spay or neuter your own pets and encourage friends and family to do the same.
Trap and bring feral cats to ARC’s spay/neuter clinic in a humane trap. Encourage others to do the same.
If someone you know is caring for feral cats, let them know about our services. Education is the key, so make others aware.
