Even one unspayed or unneutered kitty can multiply quickly. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) wants to help anyone who needs assistance with spaying and neutering cats at their upcoming clinic on Sept. 9. Drop off begins at 8am and goes through 10am; pick-up times will be scheduled 1-4pm.
“All Maui cats welcome: pet, community or feral and as with SPCA Maui’s SNAP program, clients are asked to pay what they can” says SPCA Maui’s Peter Tierney.
Visiting Oahu Veterinarian Dr. Celina Hatt will be performing the surgeries. All cats will be tattooed for identification. Maui SPCA volunteers and staff will work in assembly line stations for examination, sedation and pre-surgical prep. Feral cats will receive a notch in the ear for identification as well.
To reserve a space, get info on humane traps and trapping, volunteer or help fund this clinic or learn more about SPCA Maui’s Spay/Neuter Assistance program for dogs and cats, contact SPCAMaui at 808-280-0738, on the web at www.spcamaui.org or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Maui SPCA predicts they can reduce future cat population by as many as 932,000 cats with this 8-hour clinic. Their goal is to have “no more homeless pets” on Maui and stop the killing of companion animals as a means of population control.
Other efforts include a recent pet adoption, food and supply drive at Subaru that was held on Saturday, Aug. 25. New pet owners received a “Subaru Love a Pet Goodie Bags with every adoption. SPCA was on hand to give information out about affordable spay/neuter options. The public donated pet care supplies like bleach, cat litter, trash bags and old towels. The SPCA also received donations to their Pet Food Bank program.
