Spring time is kitten & puppy time. The warm Spring of 2017 will accelerate the birth of litters. Act now – fix your cats and dogs & avoid the hassles of unplanned litters and the extra costs of food, shelter, shots and vet care.
Every cat fixed is especially important because six times more cats are euthanized at the shelter than dogs.. An average female cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2 or 3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens.
Madisonville cats will receive priority because SNAP has a special PetSmart Charities® grant to “fix” 500 cats from the Madisonville Zip Code 37354 in 2017.
We need to spay/neuter many more cats, especially free roaming cats, barn cats, neighborhood cats, stray & feral cats -- any cat that can be placed in a carrier and taken to the vet. About 40% of the 2017 cat euthanasia’s were feral cats that were not adoptable. FREE SNAP spay/neuter vouchers can be used to fix these cats.
A pet owner can receive multiple vouchers, enough to “fix” all the household cats and dogs.
