100 Dogs Rescued from Florida

Tampa FL Humane Society


While the Tampa Bay area has made great strides in controlling dog overpopulation through aggressive spay/neuter programs, the number of unwanted cats remains a challenge in the community. In response, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay is partnering with Florida Animal Friend, Inc. to offer free sterilization of outdoor cats for the next ten months. Feral*, stray, and community cats, as well as owned cats who live outdoors, qualify for the free services which include surgery, vaccinations, pain medications, and e-collars (for post-surgical recovery).

Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) services take place every Monday at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay and normally cost $20 per cat. The process involves humanely trapping, sterilizing, and vaccinating the cats then releasing them back into their neighborhoods where they are free to live out their lives but will no longer reproduce. Since beginning this initiative in 2008, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay has spayed/neutered and vaccinated more than 45, 000 cats.

“Spaying and neutering is the only proven method for reducing populations of stray, feral, and community cats, ” said HSTB CEO Sherry Silk. “Now that we can offer it to the community for free we will be able to broaden our reach to include all outdoor cats which will make a more significant impact. We are grateful to Florida Animal Friend for making this important work possible.”

*Ear-tipping is mandatory for feral, and un-owned outdoor cats but can be waived for owned cats that live outdoors.
