Program for spaying, neutering feral cats gains new mobility
Veterinarian Patrick Goddard says he can spay or neuter about 30 to 40 cats per day in the trailer run by D-SNiP, Dogster’s Spay & Neuter Program. The mobile clinic is driven around Southwest Colorado. On this day it was parked at the J-Bar-J Ranch along County Road 203 north of Durango.
Veterinary technician Aimee Henneman carries a live trap into the trailer. The Dogster’s Spay & Neuter Program’s trailer can process about five cats at a time.
The feral cats’ left ear is snipped to show they have been spayed or neutered. After surgery the cats are given rabies vaccines and antibiotics to prevent the spread of disease.
