Polk County Florida SPCA
Spay/Neuter Surgery for Community Cats
Thanks to grants from, , and other funding sources SPCA Florida offers reduced cost spay and neuter surgeries for un-owned community cats in Polk County. The public is encouraged to take an active role in addressing the county’s 300, 000 plus un-owned cat population. SPCA Florida loans humane traps and can provide instructions on how to best trap and care for community cats. Residents then bring the un-owned felines in a box trap to SPCA Florida where the cats are spayed or neutered, identified with an ear notch, vaccinated, given a post-operative pain medication injection, and then returned to their caregiver and managed environment.
Appointments for community cats are not required, but SPCA Florida requests those animals be delivered in a humane trap between 8:00 am and 8:30 am Tuesday through Saturday to the Cat Patio, located on the side of the McClurg Animal Medical Center, 5850 Brannen Road South, Lakeland, 33813.
