Spay and Stay works with compassionate individuals and local governments to humanely control the growth of the feral cat population in Lake County, Illinois using trap-neuter-return. We link people who care for feral cats with five veterinary clinics in the area to perform spay/neuter surgeries.
How We Work
- Call us at 847–289–4557 or e-mail us at email@example.com to reach one of our volunteers to see if your cats are eligible for our program. (If they are not eligible, we will refer you to a group that can help.) Do not trap cats before contacting Spay and Stay.
- Complete the caretaker registration form and fax, e-mail or mail it to us.
- Once your caretaker registration form has been confirmed by Spay and Stay, we will call you to arrange:
- Borrowing a Spay and Stay trap
- Scheduling an appointment with one of our veterinarians.
Need more information? Read about the Spay and Stay process.
Remember, we cannot accept cats that have been trapped before you contact us.
