Better Together Animal Alliance is hosting a community cat spay and neuter day on Thursday, March 31. BTAA is opening 30 appointments as part of its well-known Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program.
TNR is a method of managing community cat colonies humanely and effectively. Community cats are trapped in humane live traps, using food as bait. They are then spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted litters and eliminate the excess of cats entering shelters.
To participate in this month’s community cat TNR day, schedule an appointment by calling (208) 265-7297 ext 100. Each person can schedule a maximum of three cats and the cost is a $20 donation per cat. Because this is a special event with limited appointments, BTAA will not be able to accept any cat or client that does not have an appointment. Drop off times will be given at the time your appointment is made.
TNR services include spay or neuter, FVRCP vaccine, and rabies vaccine if the cat is age appropriate. All cats will have their left ear tipped to help identify they’ve been altered if ever questioned or trapped in the future.
