Great idea. If every vet would volunteer one day a month to preform free spay and neuters for TNR programs imagine the impact that would have.

I think all shelters and vets need to pair up and do the same thing. Taking care of unwanted litters at the root of the problem will save everyone a lot of heartache down the line. Although I also think that stray cats and dogs picked up by animal control should be spayed or neutered before being released to their owners.

If I was a Vet this would be my number one priority after my business. In a community like ours we could make a significant dent.

With all the taxes we pay at the local, state and federal level, each city or county should provide this service free of charge once a year. Last year was my first time volunteering at the shelter during kitten season. It really torn me apart because there is never enough room for them. People would expect the shelter to take in these kittens when there were too many at animal control's office that were going to be put down. It was a no win and sad situation.

Great program but it seems as if the spay/neuter fee is a bit inflated. We adopt cats for a $120 fee that includes spay/neuter. Vets need to lower their fees for such procedures so more people do the right thing.

I so agree. If the costs were lower more people would be able to afford it. Especially with the economy the way it is...people will choose a new pair of shoes for their growing child over a elective operation for their pet. If the cost were minimal it might not be so.

I think most vets can afford to give a little something back to the community and write it off on their taxes.

Wouldn't it be nice if EVERY SINGLE VET in EVERY SINGLE CLINIC in EVERY SINGLE COMMUNITY would donate 10 free spay/neuter surgeries per month to a TNR program, just think how much of a difference that could make !

Absolutely wonderful, It seems we are reading so many more positive solutions to feral cats lately, this is such a great program, The Vets that give so much of their time to provide this much needed service. This will cut down on the colony of Feral Cats and allow them to continue living their life.

Our humane organization, Pets Without Parents, has a trap, spay-neuter and release program. We try to rehome the ferals on farms. Kudos to these vets for donating their time and money to this cause. This is a great program, and it is too bad all communities don't have a similar program.

Animal activists in collaboration with volunteer vets, what a wonderful idea. Best Friends Animal Society with its no kill ever doctrine (with the exception, of course, of a painful, terminal disease) step in yet again. Best Friends, Trap-Neuter-Return, and generous vets donating their time and skills, should make a huge difference for the feral cats of our country.

It's a great thing these vets do, although i think it's a small price to pay in releation to what it costs to house and maybe put down these animals?

Even though the vets that volunteer the spaying and neutering services they get a big tax break as well. It's not like there not getting anything in return. However it's nice that they offer this service.
