Backyard sterilization program offers free spay/neuter
Sarasota, Fla. – (September 5, 2014) – Cat Depot is pleased to announce it is the recipient of $25,000 from the Florida Animal Friend spay/neuter license plate grant. Funding will provide free spay/neuter for personal cats as part of Cat Depot’s Backyard Sterilization Program which covers zip codes 34234 and 34237. Recipients must meet government low income guidelines. Each spay/neuter will include a Rabies vaccine, flea treatment and microchip with a free lifetime registration. To schedule an appointment, please call (941) 366-2404, extension 320, or email [email protected].
“We targeted zip codes in our own backyard because we have the second highest area for impounds in Sarasota County. Unsterilized community and free-roaming cats are the greatest source of cat overpopulation. Spaying or neutering this pocket of cats will impact unwanted kittens and move us one step closer to resolving our overpopulation problem,” said Shelley Thayer, Executive Director. “Qualifying residents will also be able to receive food from our Community Food Bank and needed supplies for their cats.”
