Spay/Neuter Program

With the gracious volunteer cooperation of Clearwater Animal Hospital plus veterinarians, Jazzpurr Society For Animal Protection is neutering as many stray and feral cats as human and financial resources permit. This program is ideal for those compassionate members of our community who are already caring for homeless animals but cannot afford veterinary care for them. This approach to solving the stray and feral cats program is endorsed by 83% of the population of the city of Windsor.

The Problem: Too many abandoned cats, not enough homes

The Solution: Trap/Neuter/Manage

  1. Trap and Transport: Gently bring them to our clinic.
  2. Neuter - Treat - Identify: Vaccinate, treat ailments, identify, spay/neuter all stray and feral cats.
  3. Return to Managed Colonies to have the "Best Quality of Life Possible" caring for them in managed feral colonies for the rest of their lives.

The Results:
  1. A Proud, Decent, Compassionate Community
  2. Important, valuable work for volunteers, feral colony managers and helpers
  3. A quality life for the cats
  4. Zero Population Growth
  5. Elimination of Undesirable Behaviours
