Peggy Adams TNVR Spay Day

 

 

Thank you for supporting our August 5th Spay Day

 Our quarterly Spay Day events offer free TNVR surgeries for South Florida's community cats. So far in 2023, our Spay Day events have resulted in over 1,300 TNVR'd community cats! Stay tuned for our next event.

⁠During Spay Day, all cats will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and ear-tipped. Pre-registration is recommended, Walk-ins are welcome. All cats must come in a trap, not a carrier. Traps are available for loan with a refundable deposit. 

Already registered?  Fill out pre-appointment paperwork here to save time during check-in.

Can't make it for Spay Day but still want to help?  We offer FREE TNVR surgeries for cats in Palm Beach County every Monday - Friday. 


Previous Spay Days

On  January 7th, 2023, teams from across Florida came together for a successful 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.⁠⁠

To withstand the volume of cats being brought in for TNVR Spay Day, we need lots of traps! Peggy Adams offers residents of Palm Beach County free trap loans for the purpose of TNVR. Help us help the community!

Spay Day is a success thanks to the support from our community. Every donation helps our event run smoothly, and ultimately helps us save the lives of cats in Palm Beach County.

 

 

We are very grateful to our individual supporters, Palm Beach County, and a private foundation for underwriting the cost of TNVR to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and microchip all free-roaming cats in the 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.

Why is Spay Day happening now?

We can "beat the heat" of kitten season by playing a role in reducing the number of potential pregnancies and kittens in Palm Beach County!
