In collaboration with MSPCA Nevins Farm, we offer Sunday spay/neuter clinics for feral cats, the purpose of which is to sterilize and vaccinate as many feral cats as possible. Clinics are always held on a Sunday at Nevins Farm in Methuen and are free, though donations are welcome. Slots must be reserved in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. **NOTE THAT THIS CLINIC IS FOR HOMELESS, UN-OWNED, FREE-ROAMING, “WILD” CATS ONLY — for spay/neuter for owned cats, please visit our Catmobile page.
Clinic treatments include: A brief examination, spay/neuter, rabies and distemper vaccines, flea and ear mite treatments, and the left ear is tipped (3/8″ is taken off the top of the ear) for identification that the cat has been sterilized and vaccinated. No other diagnostic services or treatments are given. Tests for FIV and Feline Leukemia are not done.
