Texas Litter Control and the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project (MCSNP) are partnering to provide free spay and neuter services for cats. On December 8, 2013, the “Fix a Feline for Free” Day will take place at the Texas Litter Control clinic, 150 Pruitt Road #H, Spring 77380. 50 cats will be altered for people who are on public assistance. Cat owners who are on disability, Social Security, unemployment, or food stamps will be eligible to participate. These free services are underwritten by the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project.
Pet owners who qualify simply need to call the Texas Litter Control clinic at (832) 510-7622 to book an appointment for December 8th. Cats must weigh at least 3 pounds. Tame cats need to be in a carrier and feral (wild) cats need to come in traps. Intake will be between 7:00am and 8:00am. Pick up times will be assigned as cats are dropped off. There is a limit of 2 cats per household and proof of public assistance must be provided at check in.
“These sponsored days are so important to our community,” explains Deana Sellens, Executive Director of Texas Litter Control. “Texas Litter Control provides low cost services, but there are many people who cannot afford low cost. We hope to see more groups and companies step up and sponsor more of these days. It is the only way we will get ahead of the overload of kittens going into our local shelters.”
Citizens who cannot participate or do not own a cat can still help by volunteering at the clinic as well as at offsite events for both Texas Litter Control or MCSNP. For more information on these organizations and what you can do, visit www.texaslittercontrol.org or www.mcsnp.org.
