Facilitating the Trap, Neuter, and Return of feral and stray outdoor cats in Lake County, Illinois.
Spay and Stay’s goal is to connect and collaborate with compassionate individuals in Lake County, Illinois to humanely control the population of feral and stray cats.
We provide veterinary resources and coaching for caretakers to trap, neuter, and return (TNR) cats in their area. Spay and Stay teaches trapping techniques and colony care to reduce the number of homeless kittens born and improve the lives of adult cats through sterilization and vaccination.

Friendly Cat Found… Who Can Help
Spay and Stay would like to help all animals in need, however our organization is not an animal shelter or rescue center for cats or dogs. Spay and Stay is also unable to take in relinquished/owned cats or dogs. If you need help finding a place for these animals, Spay and Stay has a list of local resources that can help: Resources for Shelters and Rescues.
