Free Feral Cat Fix Day
On Thursday, October 16, Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) Animal Care Services and Anderson Valley Animal Rescue will team up to provide a Free Feral Cat Fix Day.
A feral cat, often referred to as a “Community Cat”, is a feline who has lived independent of human contact. They are working cats who keep the rodent population in check and provide a valuable service in fields and neighborhoods. However, un-altered they produce most of the hundreds of kittens that come into Mendocino County shelters every year.
Feral cats who are brought in on the 16th will be neutered, have a basic health exam and receive a rabies vaccine so they can continue to serve an important function in our community.
To find out more information about trapping a feral cat and getting an appointment for free spay and neuter on October 16, please call Julie Folk at the Mendocino County Health and Human Services Agency, Animal Care Services, Ukiah Shelter 707-463-4782. She is happy to help you.
