"Way down deep we are all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them"
IMPORTANCE OF SPAYING & NEUTERING
The single most important thing that we can do to save cats from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to spay and neuter them. Spaying and neutering are routine, affordable surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in animal shelters for lack of a loving home.
Spaying and neutering makes a big difference: In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens. Sterilized animals live longer, happier lives. Spaying eliminates the stress and discomfort that females endure during heat periods, eliminates the risk of uterine cancer, and greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight, prevents testicular cancer, and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
LOW COST SPAY & NEUTER PROGRAM
In past years, Cats Unlimited has been a recipient of grants from the W & L University Community Grant, Two Mauds Foundation and the On Shore Foundation. Grants, along with proceeds from our Catapalooza Yard Sale, Meowwy Christmas Holiday Bazaar, Pars for Purrs Golf Tournament, and individual donations have allowed us to expand our very successful low cost spay and neuter program.
We offer a low cost spay/neuter program for the citizens of Rockbridge County and the cities of Lexington and Buena Vista. For a co-pay of $30 per cat you can have it spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies, and treated for parasites.
Please call 540-458-2287 for more information about our program.
