In a Nutshell

Donations used to vaccinate, spay, and neuter cats to help reduce feline overpopulation and subsequent deaths by euthanasia

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project. Donations matched up to $1,000 by an anonymous donor. Donations are automatically applied. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Feline Euthanasia Due to Overpopulation

A cat can become pregnant at 5 months old, and deliver a litter of kittens two months later. Over the course of a year, one cat can easily produce 15 kittens. This contributes heavily to the approximately six–eight million homeless cats and dogs that enter animal shelters every year across the country. Roughly half of these animals are adopted, but the other half are euthanized. Spaying and neutering homeless animals helps reduce overpopulation and its result, euthanasia.

The Campaign: Vaccinating and Spaying or Neutering Rescued Cats

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project to vaccinate and spay or neuter free-roaming and owned cats. Every $5 donation will provide a vaccination for rabies, every $15 donation will provide one neuter surgery, and every $25 donation will provide one spay surgery. With $300, Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project can spay or neuter at least 12 cats. An anonymous donor will provide up to $1,000 in matching donations.

Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project

Spay and neuter surgeries change the lives of free-roaming cats. For females, it means a lower risk of infections and pregnancy complications; for males, less fighting and fewer health problems. When the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project started in 1997, the mission was to spay and neuter as many free-roaming cats as possible, helping reduce overpopulation and the need for euthanasia deaths in community shelters.

Today, the organization has expanded its work to include all cats, including those with homes. When a cat arrives for surgery, it also receives a basic health exam, rabies vaccination, and, for free-roaming cats, an ear tip to identify it as spayed or neutered. Since its inception, the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project has performed the surgery on more than 82,000 cats. The organization collaborates with other like-minded groups and individuals striving to care for animals in a safe, humane environment.
