Pet Pal is proud to be involved with Pinellas county’s TNVR program. The TNVR program strives to reduce the number of feral cat colonies throughout the county. An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens. A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years. If you have a feral colony that you are aware of, please contact us. We will work with our partners to address the colony population.

An EAR TIP ON THE LEFT EAR is recommended for feral cats, and is provided free of charge.

Why do we ear tip cats?

Ear tipping identifies free-roaming cats that have been sterilized. Ear tipping is completely safe and it is performed under general anesthetic. Ear tipping provides immediate visual identification, which alerts animal control that a cat is part of a colony. It also helps colony caretakers track which cats have been trapped and altered, and identify newcomers who have not.

Where do I get a cat trap?

We have humane cat traps available to rent for a REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT of $100, Photo ID, and signed lease agreement.

Why Spay & Neuter?

  • Spaying and neutering decrease the number of stray animals, which results in a decrease in animal bites (to both humans and pets), car accidents, and destruction to property.
  • 2,000 dogs and 3,000 cats are born every hour in the United States, compared to 415 humans.
  • 15 million healthy, loving, friendly cats, dogs, kittens and puppies will face death as a form of population control.
  • There are not enough homes for all the puppies and kittens born from pets whose owners simply did not spay and neuter them.
  • One unspayed female dog, her mate and their offspring can produce up to 67,000 dogs in only six years.
  • One unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring can produce 420,000 in just seven years.

HEALTH:

  • Due to the fact that spay/neuter helps reduce the incidence of some of the most common types of cancers (breast, uterine, prostate, and testicular), your animal is likely to live a longer and healthier life.

BEHAVIOR:

  • Spaying an animal eliminates their heat cycle and the undesirable elements of a heat cycle such as bleeding, crying, and nervous behaviors.
  • Spayed and neutered animals get along better with each other and exhibit less aggression towards animals of the same gender.
  • Male animals are less likely to mark their territory by urinating or spraying and less likely to run away in an attempt to find a female. This does not, however, mean you should leave your neutered animal outside unattended.

COMMUNITY ACTION:

  • Do you want to take your dog to that fun dog park down the street or the daycare around the corner?  Then your dog needs to be spayed or neutered as most dog parks and daycares require it.
  • Are you going on vacation?  Then your dog needs to be spayed or neutered as most boarding facilities require it.
