Spay Day FAQ

FCAP Eligible Cats:

For FCAP Spay Day clinics, cats must be feral, 12 weeks of age, weigh at least 3 pounds, and must be released  back to their colony after recovery from surgery.

FCAP Scheduling:

  • To schedule cats for FCAP Spay Day, please call 336-378-0878 and leave a message on Line 1.
  • A volunteer will return your call.  Remember that we are 100% volunteer driven so return calls may not be immediate.  There can be a 3-4 month backlog of cats scheduled!  We schedule as soon as possible!
  • After you are notified that you have been scheduled for a Spay Day, follow the below trapping and Spay Day information if you are a care-giver new to our program.

FCAP Trapping:EFrUR

  • FCAP scheduled cats must be brought to FCAP only in humane traps.
  • FCAP loans humane cat traps for a $75 deposit via check or credit card.
  • FCAP loaned traps must picked up at the FCAP facility the Friday night 6:00-7:00 p.m. before a Sunday FCAP Spay Day.
  • Care-givers new to the FCAP spay/neuter program must arrive at the FCAP facility at 6:00 p.m. Friday night before Spay Day to participate in a 45-minute safe trapping instruction class.  Participants learn safe trapping, Spay Day procedures, and must sign documents in preparation for Spay Day.

FCAP Spay Day Procedure:

  • You bring trapped feral cats to the FCAP facility on Spay Day Sundays at 7:00 a.m.
  • You bring two (2) clean towels to Spay Day.   One towel must be draped on the cat trap to help calm the cat.  Two (2) clean towels will go home with your cat, but they may not be your own towels, so only bring two (2) towels that you are willing to give up.
  • Leave cats in traps in your car while you sign in.  Volunteers will check cat traps in your car to assure traps are secure and properly labeled.
  • Sign in at our outdoor check-in table.  We require a phone number where you can be reached in case we need to contact you during Spay Day.
  • Spay/neuter surgery is complete and cats are ready for pickup at Sundays at 1:00-1:30 p.m.  You will received medical records and recovery instructions at that time.
  • $10/cat is due at pick-up.
  • If you are  interested in volunteering with FCAP, please contact us before Spay Day. Volunteers receive training and are scheduled in advance to ensure proper coverage.

FCAP Trap Returns:

  • FCAP loaned traps must be returned to the FCAP facility the Thursday night following Spay Day from 6-6:30 p.m.  FCAP loaned trap deposits of $75/trap are returned to the borrower at that time.

ADDITIONAL Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinics:

Low cost clinics will spay, neuter, and vaccinate feral and non-feral (pet) cats and dogs.  They may charge slightly more than FCAP yet are very convenient and very affordable.
