- A maximum of two cats per household per day are accepted.
- Pick-up time is from 4:30-5:15pm the same day. We close at 5:30pm.
- On particularly busy days, some cats may be held overnight for surgery on the following day.

- The fee to spay/neuter feral cats is $15. The remaining cost is generously subsidized by our donors and by I Care for Animals Car Tag funding.

Colony cats are neither wild nor tame but somewhere inbetween, dependant on humans to feed them. Not suitable for indoor lap pets, dullard hunting skills and hard pressed to survive on their own.
Most will allowing petting during feeding but if you try to stuff them in a carrier they will slice you.
Community cats are the sum of all the above including domestic cats who have reverted back to a feral state, and/or neglected outdoor pets, who may or may not be friendly with varying degrees of socialization., but when reliant upon humans will usually behave tame but fearfully.
All of these are OUTDOOR free roaming loose cats. Usually kept to an area by a food source, intentional or not such as dumpsters or mice/rats from a plant or farming feed storage, garbage of wasteful people who throw away meat…etc. When clustered in a colony and fed, without fixing this causes a population explosion.
All of the above should not be allowed to make more outdoor cats and NEED TNR.
