Animal Advocates offers Spay and Neuter Assistance for stray, homeless, and feral cats, and dogs and cats living with economically disadvantaged families or individuals. We also offer subsides for minor medical care, check-ups, and vaccinations.
In addition to our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program, we also offer the following programs and services:
We have a FREE Pet Help Hotline telephone service to assist people with many common concerns and problems related to their pets including spaying and neutering services, and assists callers with questions regarding lost and abandoned animals in our city and towns, and much more.
Animal Advocates also has a successful feral cat trap/neuter/return program. We provide training on managing feral cat colonies, lend out humane traps, and teach trapping techniques to assist the public with feral cats who may be living in their yards, garages, sheds, barns, businesses, or other areas. We educate the public on feral cat behavior, what ear tipping is and why it is so important, handling and after surgery care, and provide tips for winterizing colonies. Feral cats are the offspring of cats that have not been spayed or neutered and have been abandoned. They live on streets, in parks, rural farms, inner cities and populated areas and places near dumpsters and food sources.
Animal Advocates trap/neuter/return program benefits the cats and the communities and helps improve their lives. Trap/neuter/return is the humane, effective approach to feral cats. Feral cats that are sterilized, sheltered, fed and taken care of can live longer, healthier lives. See the Volunteer Opportunities page for more information on feral cat trap/neuter/return.
We have Sunday Spay Days at the low-cost spay/neuter clinic where we sterilize homeless strays and feral cats that are at risk for reproducing or awaiting adoption.
Our Fostercare and Adoption Program is always in need of caring individuals and families who are interested in becoming part of our team of foster families. If you are interested in learning more about our program, please call us at (508) 991-7727 to find out more information. It’s a wonderful way to give an animal a second chance.
We have many community outreach programs for the public, providing information, support and resources to the public on many pet related issues, with the goal of keeping animals and families together and providing spay/neuter to all animals who need the service.
We work closely with area shelters, animal organizations and animal control departments, networking and working together on behalf of animals.
