Free Spay / Neuter of Outdoor Cats of Williamson County Resumes

Kitten season is a real problem! In 2019, we received 900 UNWANTED KITTENS at our shelter. Many had to go into foster homes and be bottle fed by volunteers until they were big enough to be sterilized and enter our adoption program. This seasonal surge can be prevented by a FREE spay/neuter offered by the Community Cat Program at our shelter. Our goal is to spay/neuter 2,020 outdoor cats in 2020. Each surgery prevents thousands more kittens from being born in the wild.

If you see an outdoor cat with one ear “tipped” it means that cat has been spayed or neutered and released back into its neighborhood as part of a Community Cat Program. The tipping is done while the cat is under anesthesia and causes no pain. Remember, if it’s tipped, it’s been snipped! 

Williamson County residents with cats that go outdoors are eligible and encouraged to utilize our program. Includes rabies vaccination, microchip, and ear tip.

Upcoming dates are July 7th, 9, 11*, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28, 30.  The Saturday, July 11 clinic has a limited number of slots for dogs (must be medium to large breeds or mixes often seen at shelter).

We will even be running the Snip ‘n Tip Taxi for free pick up and return of outdoor cats for Fairview residents from the Fairview Recreation Center on July 7th, 14, 21 and 28. 

Scheduled appointments are required. Schedule your appointment today or find out how to get involved by contacting samantha.anderson@williamsoncounty-tn.gov.
