The Cedar Bend Humane Society is partnering with area vets, including the Avenue of the Saints Animal Hospital and Waverly Veterinary Clinic in Waverly, to spay tomcats in February to control the cat population.

Veterinary clinics are partnering with the Cedar Bend Humane Society to help stop pet overpopulation with the 20th annual Neuter-A-Tomcat event in February.

Please contact these veterinary clinics directly to make an appointment to neuter your farm, stray, or free-roaming cat. The cost is $30 and this fee is a donation to the Cedar Bend Humane Society’s spay and neuter program. Please have your cat(s) contained in individual carriers.
