UPDATE and The Cat Car Has Arrived

The Cat Car has arrived!  Steve and I picked it up late afternoon on Wednesday and it’s all finished! I must admit that I love it and having fun with it!  It looks like a big grey tiger cat! Our logo is on it in 3 places.  The Friends of Felines Rescue Center and address and website is on both sides and the back window.  A few Opt To Adopt and Spay or Neuter is also on the car in a few places! It’s good PR for FFRC .  It’s a clutch but Steve has helped me practice. Yesterday I drove it in Fort Wayne and all the way home. And it’s still in one piece! lol

Spay and Neuter Program

Friends of Felines Rescue Center






FFRC is working in conjunction with HumaneOhio.

We are committed to 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 physical exam and quality, 24-hour, pain medication.


HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Call FFRC at 419-393-2400 to set up an appointment. We will do this transport twice a month, usually the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month. Drop offs/pick ups are both at FFRC. The drop off time is 5:30-6:00 AM.  Pick up time is around 5:30 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.

Mama cats can be spayed when kittens are 6 weeks old. Kittens can be spayed/neutered when 2 pounds, usually that happens at 8 weeks of age.

Cats must be in a plastic crate (size appropriate) or a humane trap. NO WIRE CAGES OR SOFT SIDED CARRIERS. One cat per crate/trap. WILD CATS MUST COME IN A HUMANE TRAP.

Cats will receive a small green tattoo on their underbelly near the umbilicus 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).



  • Indoor cats/owned, male or female — $50 (includes physical)
  • Outdoor cats/stray/feral, male or female — $35 (includes physical, Rabies Vaccine and eartip)
  • No extra cost for pregnant cats, in heat cats, or eartip. ALL cats receive a vet physical and soreness meds for the first 24 hours at no cost.


  • Nail trim: $5
  • Capstar (quick flea kill pill): $5
  • Advantage Multi (flea/parasite treatment): $15
  • Rabies vaccine: $10
  • Feline distemper vaccine: $15
  • Microchip: $20
