Cat Depot Offers Free Spay/Neuter for Community and Personal Cats

Jul 01, 2014 03:05AM

Cat Depot is the recipient of several grants with funding for spay/neuter for community cats, as well as personal cats. Limited funds are available through the month of July, or until funds run out, for free spay/neuter which includes rabies vaccine and microchip.

     “Spaying or neutering your cat ensures that she or he won’t contribute to the feline overpopulation problem,” said Shelley Thayer, Executive Director. “Even a cat who lives indoors may escape and produce kittens, if not sterilized. Every year, millions of homeless cats are euthanized. You can help reduce the killing by sterilizing your pet or neighborhood strays. Please call us to learn how.”

     Cat Depot, a nonprofit, 501(c)3, no-kill, free-roaming facility, is recognized for its progressive design and commitment to helping homeless, abandoned and injured animals. Open seven days a week, Cat Depot’s mission is to save lives, find loving homes, and provide the resources and education to improve the destiny of homeless cats.

     Cat Depot supports more than 130 cats and kittens on any given day. Open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Handicap accessible. Shop in the Cat Depot Supply and Gift Store, specializing in wet and dry cat food, litter, calming products, treats and unique gifts.


Location: 2542 17th Street, Sarasota. To schedule an appointment for the spay/neuter program, please contact Deb DeVogt at 941-366-2404, or email at [email protected].
