What are Spay & Neuter Clinics?

Project SpayDay holds monthly spay-neuter clinics, where a team of veterinarians and a support staff sterilizes from 100-150 cats in a few hours. Originally, the clinic was moved to various veterinary clinics in Hillsborough County to make it more available to the caretakers. Since 2006, Project SpayDay is based out of Animal Coalition Tampa (ACT) located at 1719 West Lemon Street, just a few blocks from Downtown Tampa. During SpayDay, cats are sterilized, vaccinated, and discharged to the caretaker the same day. Project SpayDay permanently crops the left ear of all cats altered to identify each cat as a community cat.

What are Feral Cats?

The plight of feral cats has captured the hearts of animal lovers for many years, but only recently has a non-lethal option for their care become available. Called a Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) program, this humane alternative involves spaying and neutering feral cats, then returning them to their colonies where they are looked after and fed by caretakers (An estimated 12% of families in the US take on this role).

This solution successfully decreases the population, reduces birth rates and improves the overall health of the colony. Performed at a large scale, the success of such programs is felt at animal shelters where fewer cats are admitted for euthanasia.
