Free Sterilization of Feral Arizona Cats

Attention all feral cat guardians!  Friday November 11, 2011 is Free Feral Friday.  The Altered Tails Barnhard Clinic is waiving the normal $25.00 sterilization fee and will spay or neuter feral cats for free.  Each cat will also be vaccinated for Rabies.  A donation is requested but not mandatory.  Bring the ferals in humane cat traps, no kennel cabs or crates will be accepted.  Call (602) 216-1160 to make an appointment.  Space is limited so call as soon as possible.  More information is available at

I want to thank the Arizona Companion Animal Spay/Neuter Committee and an anonymous donor for making this event possible.  I also want to thank Pfizer Animal Health, the sponsor of World Rabies Day Campaign.  Lastly, heartfelt thanks to all the feral cat guardians out there.
