Free Spay and Neuter

TLC and Mongomery County Team Up

Striped KittenSpay and neuter service can cost close to $1,000 at a traditional clinic, much more than most can afford. Even at under $100 at a low cost clinic there are still those of us who must choose between feeding the family or letting Mr. Fluffy keep his Jingle Bells. Well, Happy Holidays to everyone! Texas Litter Control and the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project (MCSNP) are partnering to provide FREE (Yes, 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.

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.

If you are on disability, social security, unemployment or food stamps, simply call the Texas Litter Control clinic (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.

If you’ve already gotten Mittens fixed, you can still help TLC and MC; 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.

    I rescued a feral cat, well, I started feeding a feral cat and she ended up having kittens on my patio on dec 28,2013. I found the kittens a home but I still have the mother cat that comes around. I do not want her getting pregnant and having babies again on my patio. I am currently out of work but Id like to find out where I could have this cat fixed for a very reasonable cost. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

    I worked for a full service pet salon for the last 10 years, as general manager, but as of Dec 2013, I no longer work there. I would like to know how to find good leads for new employment in the pet industry.

    Try the Greater Good, I have personally had two animals spayed there. Or call any of the Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinics listed under the Resources tab in the main menu bar above the article.

    Keep your ears to the ground! Call around to local facilities, chat up anyone you know in the industry, and check local listings for open positions. Our magazine has lots of pet business listings and you can find more under Resources in the main menu bar above the article.
