Texas Coalition for Animal Protection awarded grant by MuttNation Foundation

[Denton, TX, JUNE 2024] – Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) is pleased to announce a generous grant from the MuttNation Foundation.

This funding enables TCAP to offer free spay and neuter services for feral cats, a crucial step in controlling and reducing the number of homeless animals in the area. The “Free Fix Day” is held on Wednesday, June 26 at the Allen, Arlington, Denton, Garland, Burleson, and Ft. Worth clinic locations.

“We are thrilled that the generous donation from MuttNation Foundation will allow us to offer a Free Fix Day for cats,” said Stacey Schumacher, TCAP Executive Director. “In addition to sterilization, TCAP will also administer rabies vaccines to these animals. By providing these necessary services, our goal is to reduce the number of unwanted litters that result in feral cat colonies.”

To participate, cat caregivers will book an appointment on TCAP’s website beginning on June 19th.   Caregivers may bring up to four cats per person and must be presented in a live trap. Each cat will be sterilized, either spay or neuter, and given a rabies vaccine for free.

Cats become fertile as young as five months.  One adult female cat can produce up to 100 kittens in a seven-year period.  The USDA estimates there are between 30 and 80 million feral cats in the US.  Feral cats face health risks and have a negative impact on local ecosystems.

This event underscores the commitment of both TCAP and MuttNation Foundation to the welfare of animals in the North Texas community.  By offering these essential services free of charge, they commit to making a positive impact through Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR).
