Exciting News for Colony Caregivers

Exciting news!  We've expanded the Colony Cat Spay/Neuter program from Fridays only to now include EVERY Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for FREE spay/neuter surgery! That's right!  There will now be spots dedicated to colony cats each day.  We're thrilled to offer this service in partnership with the Humane Society of Marion County.

Here's the scoop:

🔹 Spot Reservation: Secure your spot by registering ahead of time through the link below.
🔹 Drop-Off: Bring your colony cats ONLY to our clinic (10397 N US-27 in Ocala) at 8 AM on the day of surgery.
🔹 Surgery & Pick-Up: Surgery takes place on the same day, with pick-up scheduled for 5 PM.
🔹 No Cost: Thanks to generous grants from Marion County, there's zero cost for colony caregivers!
🔹 Requirements: All cats must be ear-tipped. They'll receive surgery, rabies/FVCRP vaccinations, and a basic medical exam. You MUST be a Marion County resident.

🌟 Please note: This initiative is exclusively for Marion County residents. 🌟

We're committed to ensuring top-notch care for colony cats, and we're excited to provide these services to our community. Huge thanks to Marion County and the Humane Society for their invaluable support!
