On Sunday, February 9, 2014, the “Fix a Feline for Free” Day will take place at the Texas Litter Control clinic.  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 services are being donated in loving memory of Annette M. Hoffman.  Pet owners who qualify simply need to call the Texas Litter Control clinic at (832) 510-7622 to book an appointment for Sunday, February 9th.  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 two cats per household and proof of public assistance must be provided at check in.

On Tuesday, February 25 in celebration of World Spay Day, National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month (February) and Texas Litter Control’s first birthday, TLC will be neutering 75 male cats for $5 each.  This event has been made possible through a partnership with the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project (mcsnp.org).  There are no financial qualifications for this day.  Pet owners simply need to call the Texas Litter Control clinic at (832) 510-7622 or visit their website at http://texaslittercontrol.org to book an appointment for February 25th.  Male cats must weigh at least 3 pounds and their testicles must be descended.  TLC will only be accepting tame cats at this event.  Cats need to arrive one per carrier.  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 two cats per household.  “Kitten season is coming,” explains Deana Sellens, Executive Director of Texas Litter Control.  “Did you know that cats can start getting pregnant at 5 months of age, they will mate with siblings and parents, and that female cats can have up to 4 litters per year.  Accidental first litters are an overwhelming problem for our shelters.”

The clinic is located adjacent to Petroleum Wholesale’s Texaco station at the Rayford/Sawdust exit on the west side of Interstate 45 just south of the Woodlands at 150 Pruitt Road #H, Spring 77380.  For more information, visit http://texaslittercontrol.org or call (832) 510-7622.
