Do you have free-roaming community cats in your Alachua County neighborhood that won't stop breeding? Too many kittens to feed? Unneutered male cats keeping you awake at night with their fighting? We have the solution!

On Sunday, March 11th, we will be holding our #CatnipSunday spay-neuter clinic at the UF vet school in Gainesville, FL., during which we will spay-neuter approximately 200 cats. All cats will also receive a full set or vaccinations, including rabies and FVRCP, along with Revolution (a parasite treatment).

Sterilization can not only control the community cat population, but also decrease aggression, marking/spraying, and prevent cancer.

Help us to keep the community cat population down and elevate their standard of care in Alachua County. Call us at 352-380-0940 or email us at clinic.reservations@ocgainesville.org to make a reservation. We can lend you free humane cat traps and give you all the tips and techniques that you need to catch the cats (It's very easy!). Traps must be picked up between February 24- March 3rd at the Operation Catnip office in order to keep your reservation. During that time we are open Tuesday-Friday 1pm-6pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm. If you already have humane traps, please come during this time so that a member of our staff can inspect the traps in person and approve them for use at our clinic.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone wishing to bring a cat to the clinic will need a prior reservation and a humane cat trap. We do not accept cats in carriers, cages or anything other than a humane cat trap. Private traps must be approved in person by a staff member prior to use. This is an Alachua County exclusive service.
