Napa Humane will offer free spay and neuter surgeries for cats starting in January for a limited time.
The organization announced Tuesday that surgeries will be free of charge with a donation of any size, which will go toward additional procedures for animals at Humane’s clinic in Napa.
Wendi Piscia, executive director of Napa Humane, said the aim is “to make it easy to be responsible cat caretakers, whether the animal is owned or a stray.” By offering free surgeries, Piscia said, “we hope to inspire more people to bring cats in for the procedure.”
According to the organization, one un-spayed female cat is capable of producing more than 11,000 kittens in a five-year span. A nationwide estimate places the populations of neighborhood cats in the tens of millions. Surgery is the best way to cull the booms that come with “kitten season,” the organization said.
