Peggy Adams TNVR Spay Day


Spay Day 2023 was an incredible success thanks to the many teams that came together on January 7th, 2023 for this mega TNVR event.⁠⁠

  • 132 people brought in 422 cats for TNVR surgery! This diverse group included first-time trappers alongside our many veterans.⁠⁠
  • 12 doctors, 25 veterinary technicians, and 9 veterinary students joined together from across Florida to perform surgeries. This group included a team from Operation Catnip Gainesville, students from the University of Florida, and a team from Veterinary Emergency Group.⁠⁠
  • In 7.5 hours of operative time, our team completed 422 spay and neuter surgeries on community cats. These surgeries include the spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchipping, and a tipped ear tip to signify a completed TNVR surgery. ⁠⁠
  • 47 volunteers and 42 Peggy Adams' staff assisted in duties all throughout the event, including check-in, surgery prep, instrument sanitization, cat & trap organization, recovery, and more.⁠⁠

Thank you for making a difference by fostering a brighter future for community cats, Spay Day could not have been this massive without your effort from all across Palm Beach County

What is TNVR?

Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) is a program in which free-roaming cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies and other feline viruses, microchipped, and then returned to their outdoor homes. TNVR has been shown to be the least costly, most effective, and humane way of stabilizing and decreasing community cat populations.
