Are you caring for a feral, or "Community"cat?
DO NOT trap a cat without a plan. Operation SOS does not adopt, rehome or remove cats. We book our surgery dates up to two months in advance. Scheduling surgery is done through the VOLUNTEER Trappers. In deep respect for Volunteer willingness to gift their time, vehicle, gas and home to store cats prior to surgery, you MUST follow through on direction they give regarding feeding and trapping. All cats trapped will be returned to the location they are trapped with NO exceptions. In short, please be incredibly respectful of those willing to help. If you fail to follow through on phone calls, feeding or other requests, we reserve the right to no longer assist.
Where do you live?
*City of Port Saint Lucie & St. Lucie County & City of Fort Pierce*
We are proud to be a provider for Community cat sterilization in these areas. We ask you work with Operation CatSnip to be sure proper protocols are followed. Please be aware: EVERY cat under this program will have a 1/4" of its left ear removed, along with microchipping and rabies vaccination. There are NO exceptions. We will assume the cat lives outdoors and is part of a managed, fed colony. We will NOT accept owned-cats under this program. Operation CatSnip receives no funding for their services. Please be respectful of their volunteer time.
This municipality does not support a Community Cat program, despite its incredibly large stray cat population. Please contact your Commissioner to voice concern there is no effective population control plan slated for cats.
The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast partners with Animal Control to provide sterilization surgery. Call this Organization at (772)223-8822.
