TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) and Spay/Neuter is by far the most effect and humane way to address the feral cat epidemic facing Long Island, NY. Feral cats are not indigenous to our area therefore this epidemic starts with owned pets. By spaying just one female cat we will have prevented upwards of 370,092 cats in only 7 years. It is difficult to put a number as to how many feral cats reside on Long Island, it is fair to say that sheer volume of feral cats on Long Island is overwhelming and we are in a state of crisis. It is incredibly difficult to keep up with the calls that come in daily from those needing help placing cats & kittens found in their backyards or on the streets of Long Island, NY.
The Prevent A Litter (P.A.L) program by Tender Loving Cats, Inc, aims to provide a low-cost spay/neuter for feral cats as well as pet adult cats owned by individuals who qualify based on income residing on Long Island, NY. In an attempt to curb the numbers of homeless cats & kittens born on Long Island’s streets every year, individuals who qualify will pay $25 of the $75-$95 spay/neuter per cat/kitten at the local participating veterinarians below. Tender Loving Cats, Inc. pays the rest of the bill $50-$75 bill per cat/kitten(s). This is made possible by donations, grants and fundraising events.
