586 Feral Fix
This Macomb County community cat TNR sterilization package is being SPONSORED by the Bissell Pet Foundation. Participants must be TNR certified with valid TNR ID.
This program is available from September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022. Cats must be trapped within Macomb County and be released back into their originating area. Cats must be 8 weeks or older and weigh a healthy 2lbs or more.
Voucher recipients are responsible for trapping, scheduling appointment dates with All About Animals, transport (including drop-off and pick-up) and safe release of the cats participating.
The voucher for the TNR package includes:
- Pain Management Injection
- Mandatory Eartip
- Rabies Vaccine (for cats 12 weeks and older)
*Not redeemable for cash or another service. An additional $5 charger may occur if Capstar is needed to treat for live fleas. Live fleas compromise the sterile surgical field. Those Certified for Feral Cat Management by Michigan Humane or Humane Society of Macomb do NOT need an additional certification from All About Animals.*
How does this program work?
Individuals that are Certified, with a valid TNR ID, now have the opportunity to receive a voucher from Macomb County Animal Control to cover the cost of the discounted TNR sterilization package offered by All About Animals. Up to 3 vouchers can be distributed at one time. Community cats must be trapped within the limits of Macomb County and must then be safely released back into the originating area. An appointment must first be secured at All About Animals Rescue before a voucher request form can be completed. Vouchers are good for 30 days from date of disbursement. Participants are responsible for humane live trapping, scheduling appointments with All About Animals, completing a voucher request form, transportation (including drop-off and pick-up) on their scheduled appointment date, and the safe release of the community cat. Our team will follow-up with participants to verify that the voucher has been properly utilized.
This program is made possible thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation.
Why do I need to be TNR Certified?
TNR training workshops provides education on best practices in community cat management and trapping. The 586 Feral Fix program is specifically offered to those that are TNR Certified, and participants can secure up to 3 appointments with All About Animals per person/colony per day (as openings are available).
What is the goal of this program?
In an effort to help control the community cat population, programs such as TNR have been placed into effect. This program is designed to help promote a healthy and sterile community. Our goal is to sterilize 400 community cats between September 1, 2021 - August 31, 2022!
How does this program differ from the standard Shelter-Neuter-Return Program?
Macomb County Animal Control offers a community cat SNR program to all Macomb residents in our service area. The SNR program does not require the resident to complete any training or a certification, but we have limited availability per week and residents can not reserve more than 2 spots per week. SNR drop off is by appointment on Mondays (or Tuesday if there is a holiday) and residents are required to collect their community cat on Thursday. Although there is no charge to residents for the SNR program, it is solely supported by donations and is only available while funds last. The 586 Feral Fix is also limited to 400 cats and the last date available for use is August 31, 2022.
