FFRC is working in conjunction with HumaneOhio.
We are committed to help reduce the overpopulation problem of cats in Defiance and our area counties.
All spays/neuters are performed by qualified, licensed veterinarians. Each cat receives a brief physical exam and quality pain medication.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Call FFRC at 419-393-2400 to set up an appointment. We will do this transport once a month on the first Monday of the month, unless it’s a holiday, and then the day would be Tuesday. Drop off/pick up are both at FFRC. The drop off time is 5:30-6:00 AM. Pick up time is 5:30-6:00 PM.
PRE-OP INSTRUCTIONS: No food after midnight if the animal is 4 months or older. No food after 6 AM if the cat is under 4 months old. They can have water.
Cats must be in a crate (size appropriate) or a humane trap (no cardboard boxes). One cat per crate/trap. WILD CATS MUST COME IN A HUMANE TRAP.
Cats will receive a small tattoo on their underbelly near the incision to identify that they have been fixed. If the cat is an outdoor cat/stray/wild, the left ear will be tipped (a universal sign that this cat has been neutered/spayed).
