Mayor Yates proclaimed February 28 as World Spay Day in Monroe County and urged all residents to spay/neuter their pets. See attached proclamation.
SNAP is excited about a special PetSmart Charities® grant to “fix” 500 cats from the Madisonville Zip Code 37354 in 2017. Madisonville cats will receive priority.
We need to reduce the Monroe County Cat population in general. Six times more cats are euthanized than dogs. We need to spay/neuter many more cats, especially free roaming cats, barn cats, neighborhood cats, stray & feral cats -- any cat that can be placed in a carrier and taken to the vet. SNAP Free spay/neuter vouchers can be used to fix these cats.
Every cat fixed is important. An average female cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2 or 3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens.
A pet owner can receive multiple vouchers, enough to “fix” all the household cats and dogs.
