Be Responsible – Spay & Neuter

Population numbers of outdoor community cats grow exponentially if reproduction is not altered. Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) is an effective and humane reproduction control method. By removing the reproductive ability in community and domestic cats the ever-growing numbers decline.

We encourage all pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered.

The Humane Society of Clay County provides free TNR surgery and rabies shots every Wednesday for up to 40 cats. Free spay and neuter for domestic cats is open by appointment only. The Humane Society is a low cost veterinary clinic and does not operate as a shelter facility. Please call (904) 276-7729 for more information or visit their website here.
