  • Spay & Neuter

    The SPCA of Franklin County has two programs to reduce the number of animals brought into our local shelters.

    1.  The SNIP program is for pet owners who can not afford to pay full price for spay/neuter services.  With our vouchers, owners pay just $35 for cats and $50 for dogs.

    2.  Trap-Neuter-Return/Release or TNR is for feral cats.  Feral cats, sometimes called community cats, are domesticated felines that have returned to a wild state.   The main difference between pet cats and feral cats, is feral cats cannot be easily handled and are usually afraid/skittish of human contact.  They are often fed by caring citizens in the community and in return the cats provide insect, rodent, and snake control.  Cats can produce litters of 6-8 kittens as often as 3 times per year, which is why it is important to make sure the feral cats you are feeding are not contributing to the cat overpopulation in Franklin County.   The cost to spay/neuter a feral cat is $20 and humane traps are available at our office, free of charge.   All feral cats MUST be transported in traps (no carriers) to their surgical appointments.

  • Trap-Neuter-Return

    Every year there are more then 77,500 cats put down in North Carolina. Most of them are community cats who could not be adopted because they are considered unadoptable. By helping these cats we can reduce the number being killed each year. Not only does that mean a better life for the cats but it means less money spent by taxpayers.

    Caring for community cats is simple and straight forward – food, water, shelter and most important having them spayed/neutered & vaccinated. You can get started on getting the cats you care for spay/neutered and vaccinated by filling in our SNIP Fund for Community Cats form.
