In 2020, the SPCA of Texas has created a new Community Cat program to empower everyone in their neighborhoods to Keep Their Streets Litter Free. Despite the challenges with Covid-19 this year, almost 2,000 free-roaming outdoor cats in the DFW Metroplex have been spayed and neutered through our three clinics.
Community cats live outdoors and are unowned, but many are cared for by kind hearted people who provide food and shelter. The SPCA of Texas is equipping the public to sterilize these cats through our Community Cat Program. Trap-Neuter-Return, where cats are humanely trapped then brought to a clinic to be altered and vaccinated, is the only effective way to decrease populations of outdoor cats. A cat that has been sterilized also receives an ear tip to signify that they have been through the program. Altering an outdoor cat not only reduces unwanted litters of kittens, it prevents a lot of the nuisance behavior associated with mating and fighting.
The SPCA of Texas is providing education and loaning humane traps to caretakers and volunteers to make the process of trapping, neutering and returning as simple as possible so that everyone has the tools to care for the cats on their street. Many neighborhoods have worked together this year and have managed to trap and spay or neuter every cat on their street. More information on clinic schedules, trapping procedures and borrowing traps can be found at www.spca.org/communitycats.
Thanks to donors, we have been able to provide these services at no cost to trappers this year and want to continue offering free spay/neuters for outdoor cats in the future. Donor support is needed so we can offer these vital services that keep kittens from being born on the streets. Donating is easy and every $25 donation alters a cat, preventing multitudes of unwanted kittens and a healthier and happier life for the cat that has found its self on the streets by no fault of their own. You can help save lives by donating at www.spca.org/giveforcats.
