Low-cost spay/neuter programs!
The Foundation has two low-cost spay/neuter programs for cats. In the Springfield program, we pick up cats in central locations in Peoria and Morton, transport them to the Animal Protective League, and return the following morning. In the Morton program, you bring your cat to a veterinary clinic in Morton in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon. Both programs have the same costs: $30 for males and $40 for females. The Springfield program also spays and neuters feral cats for $25. If your cat has not had a rabies vaccination, it will need one for $9 (already included in the feral rate).
During 2010, the first full year of operation of our spay/neuter programs, PAWS had 1,600 fewer cats (25-30%) than usual. We believe that our programs played a big role in decreasing the number of cats turned into the shelter. By the end of 2013, we expect to have spayed and neutered well over 6,000 cats and kittens.
The spay/neuter programs have been made possible in part by grants from the Jean M. Ligon Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois, the Rex and Nelle Jackson Foundation and the Petco Foundation.
