1
Feral Cat Assistance Program
  • Improving the lives of feral/stray cats in and
    around Greensboro, NC
  • (Click each page to proceed.)

2
FCAP Spay/Neuter Day
  • One Sunday morning each month, FCAP volunteers
    gather at xxx West Market Street to prepare,
    spay/neuter, and return to their colony 50 to 100
    feral/stray cats.

3
Volunteers begin bringing cats at 700 am and
receive instructions before veterinarians arrive.
4
Sterile surgical kits are prepared, one set for
spaying female cats and one set for neutering
male cats.
5
A cats first surprise is a quick anesthetic
injection in their rump while safely contained in
their trap.
6
Each cat is weighed, sex determined, physical
problems noted, and recorded on papers which
follow them throughout the morning's procedures.
7
Anesthetized female cats are stabilized onto
boards in preparation for surgery.
8
Female cat's bellies are shaved and swabbed with
antiseptic before surgery.
9
Female cats are spayed by licensed veterinarians
who volunteer their time, along with assistants.
10
Between 5 and 8 volunteer veterinarians and many
assistants perform surgeries for 2-3 hours each
Spay Day morning.
11
After surgery, assistants check each female cat's
temperature and note any special conditions to
be monitored.
12
Meanwhile, male cats are also shaved in
preparation for surgery.
13
Male cats are neutered by licensed veterinarians
and assistants.
14
All cats receive rabies vaccine, deworming and
antibiotic medicines, have wounds treated, ears
cleaned, and flea medicine.
15
Many veterinarians and assistants have
consistently volunteered their services for years!
16
After surgery, cats with temperatures below 96
degrees F. are placed under a forced air warming
blanket until their temperature rises.
17
Volunteers complete and double-check paperwork,
and move cats to recovery crates before the cats
awaken.
18
Volunteers repeatedly check all cats as they
begin awakening from surgery.
19
At 100 pm, caretakers arrive to take their cats
home for 12-24 hours observation in crates.
20
If all is well, all feral/stray cats are released
back into their colony the following day,
healthy and never again to reproduce.
