We had our very first Feral Cat Clinic at the new HCWS Clinic this past Sunday and it was a huge success! We sterilized 270 cats and kittens who were brought in from various rescue groups that specialize in crucial trap and release programs. It is estimated that the Las Vegas Valley is home to over 200,000 feral cats which can quickly become 1,000,000 kittens if they all reproduce and Spring is high kitten season so HCWS along many other local organizations are working very hard to eliminate this problem.
We would like to send a huge thank you to the Vets, Vet Techs and our volunteers for working so hard. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Your donations are critical in keeping our clinic running and reducing the amount of animals that are left to die on the streets. Please consider making a donation by clicking here.
- Myth: If you have to move away it is O.K. to set your cat free because cats revert back to their natural wild state.
Fact: Domestic cats do not fend well for themselves. Most of them starve to death; become prey to larger animals or fall victim to disease.
- Myth: Cats need time to wonder outside by themselves.
Fact: Cats who are allowed to run around on their own can become lost or get into fights with more aggressive felines or get run over by vehicles. A cat can learn how to walk on a leash.
- Myth: Cats who always stay indoors do not have to be spayed/neutered.
Fact: Cats are quick and will take advantage of an opportunity to dash outside if a door is left open. One pair of felines and their offspring can produce hundreds of kittens in a very short period of time.
