Spay n Save used to be part of CATS-CAN, a feline rescue and adoption group. Some of the folks at CATS-CAN, however, realized that not enough was being done to prevent the huge number of unwanted cats and kittens, so Spay n Save was started.
This organization performs spaying and neutering to help prevent the overpopulation of cats at the source.
Spay n Save receives no government funding and is supported by donations. The staff members all work on a volunteer basis, without pay. Spaying and neutering is done by veterinarians and through the mobile vet clinic.
Located in Seminole County, Spay n Save directly addresses the problem of feral cats in the area. Strays are humanely trapped, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, treated for internal and external parasites, and spayed or neutered.
After being treated, the animals are returned to the place of capture. One ear is marked, indicating that it has been treated. Every month, Spay n Save sterilizes more than 100 cats.
Spay n Save also offers low-cost sterilization surgery for pet cats that have homes and owners. The clinics are usually offered about once a month.
The $45 fee includes spaying or neutering, vaccines for distemper and rabies, and preventive treatment for ear mites, fleas, heartworms, and intestinal worms. The cats are also administered penicillin to prevent infection from surgery.
If you’re concerned about the number of unwanted felines, there are several ways you can help Spay n Save. Monetary donations are much appreciated, of course, but you can also donate food, towels, pillow cases, blankets, comforters, throw rugs, paper towels, bleach, cat litter, and your time.
