Cat Care: TNR & Treatment

Over the last six years HydraArk has significantly reduced the overpopulation of the island’s cats and improved their overall health. Our organization has achieved this through an annual program of spaying and neutering. Over 600 cats have been sterilized, over 200 have been vaccinated and given antiparasite treatment, and over 20 have been adopted. The Marchig Animal Welfare Trust, based in Switzerland, funds most of the sterilization program for cats and subsidizes the fee for the veterinary surgeon. The remaining costs are entirely covered by our generous donors, and our members volunteer to man the clinic throughout the 3-day neutering sessions.

At this session, 87 cats were spayed/neutered; 13 cats had dental care; 1 cat was treated for ear cancer; 1 female dog was spayed. All they got antiparasite treatment.
