“Trapper Tuesday” – $10 feral cat surgeries in July

June 25, 2008 at 7:57 pm Leave a comment

We’re offering $10 surgeries for feral (unowned, free-roaming) cats every Tuesday in July.

The price includes surgery, pain medication, rabies vaccination and an ear tip to identify the cat as being fixed. Cats must be in traps. Promotion cannot be combined with any other specials. Other services such as flea or heartworm preventative are available at regular low prices.  Call the clinic at (813) 250-3900 to reserve an appointment, or visit www.actampa.org for additional information.

A majority of the animals brought into local shelters are cats. In 2007, over 16,000 (84% of those brought in) where euthanized. Sterilization is the most effective way to end the tragedy of cat overpopulation in our community.


Feral cats are the offspring of stray or abandoned household pets.  Raised without human contact, they quickly revert to a wild nature and form colonies where food and shelter are available. Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a humane alternative involving spaying and neutering feral cats, then returning them to their colonies where they are looked after and fed by caretakers. This solution successfully decreases the population, reduces birth rates and improves the overall health of the colony.
