Upcoming Spay Days

Alley Cats and Angels is committed to helping end the cat overpopulation issue though spay/neuter. Our Alter an Alley Cat program will be hosting spay days throughout the year to provide very low cost spay/neuter to cats owned by lower income households and feral cats cared for by caregivers on limited incomes. These spay days are held at a vet in the North Raleigh area.

If you would like to request an appointment for one of the following spay days, please fill our the Alter an Alley Cat spay/neuter assistance form and reference the spay date.

If you’ve found a stray cat:

First determine if the cat is friendly/tame or feral. A feral cat is not socialized to humans, cannot be approached, touched, or picked up.

Friendly cats

•     Contact a local vet and ask them to scan the cat for a microchip. Most vets should provide this service free of charge

•     Place a found cat ad (free of charge) in a local newspaper

•     Raleigh News & Observer, 919-829-4500, http://www.newsobserver.com
 •    Durham Herald Sun, 919-419-6910, http://www.heraldsun.com/

•     Register a found pet report with local shelters

•     Wake County Animal Center, http://trianglelostpets.org/

•     Provide basic care for the cat (food, water, shelter)
•     Move inside to a safe location if possible
•     If there are no responses to the found pet ads, contact local rescue organizations to get the cat on their intake waitlists
•     If the cat is not spayed/neutered, please spay/neuter the cat to help end the overpopulation crisis. There are many local low-cost spay/neuter options available
