Free Spay and Neuter for Cats

Cat Depot is offering free spay/neuter for personal cats and kittens in zip codes 34234, 34237 and 34235. Each spay/neuter will include a Rabies vaccine, flea treatment and microchip with a free lifetime registration. Recipients must meet government low income guidelines. The Backyard Sterilization program is due to funding by the Florida Animal Friend spay/neuter license plate grant and the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society.

     “We targeted ZIP codes in our own backyard because we have the second highest area for euthanasia in Sarasota County. Unsterilized community and free-roaming cats are the greatest source of cat overpopulation,” says Shelley Thayer, Executive Director. “Qualifying residents will also be able to receive food from our Community Food Bank and needed supplies for their cats.”

     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. 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. The Cat Depot Supply and Gift Store is open daily, specializing in top brands of wet and dry cat food, litter, calming products, treats and unique gifts for cats and cat lovers.
