Feral Cats


A feral cat is a cat who has either never had any contact with humans or whose contact with humans has diminished over time. Feral cats are fearful of people and survive on their own outdoors.clip_image001

Robinson’s Rescue can spay/neuter a feral cat who has been brought to our clinic in a humane trap (see left photo). All feral cats must be in a humane trap to be accepted for surgery. If you do not own a humane trap, you can rent one from Robinson’s Rescue for a $60 refundable deposit. We currently have a waiting list to rent feral traps, please call or email the clinic to get placed on the waiting list.

We are currently taking feral cats Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday only.  Please follow us on Facebook for any updates.  Please remember feral cats are on a first come/first serve basis.  

We ask that you try to call or email the clinic at office@robinsonsrescue.org by noon the day before you plan to drop off to expedite the curbside check in process.  Please remember feral cats are on a first come/first serve basis.  If you do not call the clinic the day before to schedule, you will be instructed to pull to the front of the building to fill out paperwork.  Please be patient, as this may take some time.

We require one feral cat per trap and only two feral cats per owner per day.  Feral cats are dropped off between 8:00-8:30 AM and picked up at 7:30 AM the following morning.  When arriving in the drop off line, our curbside will instruct you.  Please stay in your vehicle and DO NOT remove your cat until instructed to do so.

 Robinson’s Rescue charges $33 to neuter a feral male cat and administer a rabies vaccination and charges $43 to spay a feral female cat and administer a rabies vaccination.  We do charge an additional $20 if your female feral cat is pregnant.  Payment is only taken by credit card over the phone on the day of surgery.  There will be a $3 service fee for all credit card transactions.

All feral cats that are spayed/neutered by Robinson’s Rescue will be given an ear-tip, approved by the American Veterinary Medical Association as the universal sign a cat has been spayed or neutered.

All feral cats spayed/neuter by Robinson’s Rescue will also receive dissolvable sutures, which eliminate the need for a follow-up visit to remove stitches.
