The BC SPCA will be offering free spay/neuter clinics for feral cats in Vancouver, Prince George and Kamloops, beginning Feb. 23. The efforts are part of the society’s efforts to reduce pet overpopulation in B.C.
The first of the clinics will be held on Sunday, Feb. 23 at the BC SPCA Animal Hospital at 1205 East 7th Avenue in Vancouver. It is the eighth year the free clinic has been offered, with individuals who care for feral colonies and unowned cats signing up to bring the animals in for sterilization.
“We offer a range of free services, including medical examinations, spay/neuter operations, vaccinations, flea treatments, permanent identification and medical treatments for up to 100 cats during the clinic,” says Dr. James Lawson, chief animal health officer for the BC SPCA. Any cat or kitten who is tame enough for adoption is placed into SPCA care for rehoming.
Feral cat clinics are also planned for March 12 and March 14 at the BC SPCA’s spay/neuter clinics in Kamloops and Prince George, respectively. All appointments must be booked in advance. For details, please contact the BC SPCA Vancouver Animal Hospital, the Prince George Spay/Neuter Clinic (250-562-5556), the Kamloops Spay/Neuter Clinic (250-376-6055).
