For The Community
Guidance caring for communities of feral and stray cats
Feral cats are not used to people so don’t attempt to approach or pet them. Stray cats may have been someone’s pet, but will need time to become familiar with a care taker. Provide dry and wet food and water at the same time every day.
UPDATE: FEBRUARY 16, 2022
LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER FOR OWNED CATS IS SUSPENDED DUE TO LACK OF VETERINARY AVAILABILITY
Discounted cost for spay/neuter and vaccinations
Feral and community cats, as well as pets, need to be spayed or neutered. Contact Operation CatSnip for information on St. Lucie County’s free TNVR programs for unowned community cats.
For the Cats
Direction assisting mother cats and kittens
Discovering a mom and her kittens during Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) can be an adorable yet challenging experience (mostly adorable). To properly handle a mom and her kittens, there are a lot of factors to consider. Should you leave mom with her kittens? Are the kittens old enough to separate from mom? What if you find kittens without mom? How can you safely trap a family? See Alley Cat Allies for more information through this link: www.alleycat.org
Assisting with trapping
Operation CatSnip volunteers have experience trapping cats in humane traps.
Operation CatsSnip provides foster care at private homes and coordinates showing cats and kittens for adoption.
