The 50 Feral Fix: October 2016

The 50 Feral Fix is back! This time we’re celebrating National Feral Cat Day. Harnesslife.org is again collaborating with North Brunswick Humane Association and People For Animals in this larger scale event to support TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) by providing free spay and neuter for 50 feral cats. Also, to make it easier for those without holding or recovery space, People for Animals has agreed to hold the cats for one night pre-op on October 12 (no charge) and one night for post-op recovery on October 13 ($5 charge per cat). Here are the details:

  • WHO:  Feral cats in New Brunswick, North Brunswick Township, South Brunswick Township, East Brunswick, Milltown, Jamesburg, Spotswood and Monroe. Limit of 6 cats per trapper.
  • WHAT:  Free spay or neuter (Includes rabies & distemper vaccines, ear tip, injectable antibiotics and pain control as indicated, tattoo and medical waste disposal.) NOTE: To qualify for the free feral surgery, cats must be unsocialized and be part of a TNR effort. It the cat is adoptable/socialized (no ear tip), the TNR organization/trapper will be assessed a $35 fee per socialized cat. Additional services are available, including post-op boarding. All additional fees are paid by TNR organization/trapper.
  • WHERE:  People For Animals Clinic, 1 Sharon Road, Robbinsville, NJ 08691 NOTE: This is at the Robbinsville location only.
  • WHEN:  Thursday, October 13, 2016
    • Drop off:
      • Wednesday, October 12, by 3:30 PM, if cats are spending one night pre-op (no charge)
