Feral & Community Cat Program


Feral/Community Cat Program

***All Sunday clinics have been sponsored and spay/neuter will be FREE for all Sacramento County feral/community cats at these clinics through 2018! An appointment is required***

The Sacramento SPCA holds Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Clinics four Sundays per month. These clinics are specifically for feral and free-roaming cats that have been trapped the day before the clinic, and are not intended for pet cats. The price is $17 per cat and includes spay/neuter, a mandatory ear tip, FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and flea and earmite treatment if needed .

General information

Trap Loan Program

The Sacramento SPCA is now operating a feral cat trap loan program. The purpose of this program is to loan traps to individuals who participate in TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return). We encourage you to trap, neuter and return cats to their home colonies in order to reduce cat overpopulation. We require an $80 check deposit per trap, which is held until the trap is returned to the Sacramento SPCA.


Feral and Community Cat Clinic Sponsorship

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) estimates that there are tens of millions of community cats roaming throughout the country.  Our region is home to a countless number of these cats.  Community cats are cats that are born and raised in the wild or have been abandoned or lost and turned to wild ways to survive. Community cats typically live in a colony which occupies a specific territory where food and shelter can be found.
