Dear Feral Cat Friends and Advocates:
Thanks to a generous grant from Pet Peeves, Last Hope is again able to offer vouchers for FREE spay/neuter of feral cats to the caretakers of Long Island feral colonies. We want you and the feral cats on Long Island to benefit from our good fortune.
Please do not abuse the program by sneaking in friendly cats for spay/neuter or by requesting additional vouchers through other individual’s names. All cats must be brought to the vets in humane traps and will be ear-tipped. There will be no exceptions. We want this program to be successful so that we can continue to offer it as long as we have funding.
This program will run from February 13 to April 15, 2017. All vouchers will expire on April 15. This is the first and most productive breeding period for Long Island’s ferals. We want to stop the breeding early so do not delay and get trapping! You must complete the attached agreement (download agreement here) and submit it as requested to receive your free spay/neuter vouchers.
Our regular Fix-A-Feral low cost spay/neuter program will resume April 15, 2017. The forms for that program will be posted on the website in early–mid April.
Lastly, we will continue to offer our monthly FREE spay/neuter feral cat clinics at our Wantagh Adoption Center or at My Pets Vet in Huntington on select Sundays through April. Please check our website, www.lasthopeanimalrescue.org for updates.
Let’s all work together to reduce the number of unwanted kittens born this year.
