If we are going to have an animal around, we want to take good care of it. So, with that in mind, despite some major hesitations at spending money on a cat (in our experience, barn cats seem to meet their demise soon after any amount of money is spent on them), I made a spur of the moment decision after seeing a facebook post advertising that a Feral Cat Spay/Neuter clinic would be held the following day at the Atlantic Animal Health Center.
I have to admit, we weren’t the best prepared, and we had some adventures just getting Fluffy into her broken, destined for the dump, duct taped together, cat carrier
If it was not for a clinic such as this, Fluffy most definitely would not have gotten spayed and I am grateful that these clinics exist. I highly encourage you to take the cat(s) hanging out around your farm or in your neighborhood in to participate in the program and help keep Iowa’s kitty population under control.
Following is a list of vet clinics/organizations that have held feral cat spay/neuter in the past:
The Anita Vet Clinic
Atlantic Animal Health Center
Harlan Veterinary Services
Western Iowa's Feral and Homeless Cat Program
