Santa Rosa County Animal Services offers a free community cat spay/neuter program
Santa Rosa County Animal Services has received a $15,000 grant from Florida Animal Friend to spay/neuter 300 community cats!
Residents can register up to five community cats at a time. Citizen must be a Santa Rosa County resident and the cats must be at least three months of age. In addition to spay/neuter, cats will also receive a rabies vaccination and ear tip. A tipped ear indicates that a community cat has been altered."The animal shelter management team and staff are so excited to have received this support from the Florida Animal Friend grant for our community," said Dora Thomason, Shelter Director. "An opportunity to spay and neuter unaltered community cats will bring our community one step closer to reducing pet overpopulation and provide a no cost resource for our residents. I am so grateful for this partnership and opportunity to make a positive impact in our community."To register community cats, residents must make an appointment by calling the shelter at (850) 983-4680. Appointments are available on a first come, first served basis.
Citizens are responsible for trapping the cats and transporting them to and from the Pensacola Humane Society, 5 N.Q St. in Pensacola. Cats must be secured in a trap or carrier.
