THE MARYLAND SPCA'S DEFINITION OF A STRAY/FERAL CAT CARETAKER: A person or group of people who provide food and shelter to stray/feral cats. A stray/feral cat caretaker acts to reduce colony numbers by working to spay and neuter the animals within their colony(ies).
INCENTIVES PROVIDED BY THE MARYLAND SPCA FOR STRAY/FERAL CAT CARETAKERS:
The Maryland SPCA highly recommends that all stray/feral cat caretakers attend the workshop presented by Community Cats of Maryland. The workshop is held at the BARCS animal shelter the third Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. The Maryland SPCA will give Community Cats of Maryland a free feral spay/neuter certificate for each workshop attendee. The certificate is good for one time only for one cat only in the Maryland SPCA's Spay and Neuter Clinic. An appointment is required.
Additional Information and Appointments:
To qualify for the TNR clinic, all cats must be brought in humane traps and must receive an ear tip. Appointments are required, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Maryland SPCA is unable to relocate feral cats and/or remove feral cats from any premises.
