We are pleased to announce that the 5th Boston Spay and Neuter Day for Cats event that was held on May 10th was a great success. The Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Spay Waggin, in collaboration with the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society’s (MRFRS) Cat Mobile, we spayed and neutered 78 cats and provided veterinary care for an additional 20 cats in the cat clinic at the event. This totals 98 cats cared for in one day. The event took place at the United House of Prayer for All People Church in Dorchester. This event was made possible by a generous grant from the ASPCA.
This Boston Spay and Neuter Day for Cats event was the 5th of its kind. The events are always a collaborative effort with the goal of providing low cost (subsidized) spays and neuters for $25 as well as low cost veterinary care at our on-site cat clinic for $10 for residents of targeted Boston neighborhoods. Because of this regular event, 631 cats in total have been cared for since the first event. These cats might not have otherwise been seen by a Veterinarian (acknowledged by clients at these events)
With generous grants from the ASPCA and Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC), we are able to provide this needed service to appreciative cat owners of Boston and will continue to do so.
The work doesn’t stop there either. Our Spay Waggin is one of a several resources in Massachusetts that offers affordable spay and neuter surgeries to clients in need of financial assistance.
Spaying and neutering is a service that the Animal Rescue League of Boston feels is a priority. We are so proud to work in a city that is one of the best in the nation at not only reducing the overpopulation of cats and other animals because of our spay and neuter efforts, but also at saving the lives of animals as a whole through our successful adoption programs and rescue work.
