Hi! I visited your clinic as part of the adoption process for Pitt County Animal Shelter. The staff I spoke with when picking up my cat after surgery were professional, informed , friendly and genuinely cared about their jobs. They went out of their way to explain how to reach someone at all hours and over the weekend should I have questions or need assistance. I will recommend Spay Today to anyone and everyone!

Thanks again so much for everything you did for our fur-baby, Nalla! Everyone there was incredible and she did wonderfully through her recovery.
The overall experience was great! Everyone that we came in contact with was friendly and professional. I have already recommended Spay Today to a couple of my friends. Keep up the great work and thank you!

What is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)?
Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.
Trap-Neuter-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes.
Grounded in science, TNR stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction. It is a fact that the removal and killing of outdoor cats that animal control has been pursuing for decades is never ending and futile. Since feral cats are not adoptable, they are killed in pounds and shelters. With a successful program like Trap-Neuter-Return to turn to, it’s hard to believe that animal control agencies continue to kill cats, even though that approach has shown zero results.It is time to put an end to catch and kill. Trap-Neuter-Return provides a life-saving, effective solution for these beautiful, independent cats.
