Assistance with Logistics
FieldHaven staff and volunteers can provide transportation assistance by prior arrangement. Recipients will schedule spay/neuter with FieldHaven, drop off the cat(s) at FieldHaven’s shelter on the morning of surgery, and pickup that evening. Traps and cages can be loaned to individuals working with feral cats. We also provide advice and assistance with instruction on the use of traps, TNR, recovery, etc. Education is also a key goal of the SNAP. FieldHaven volunteers provide education on responsible pet stewardship to local youth groups, civic organizations, and schools.
Donate to SNAP
Each year, our goal is to spay/neuter 800 to 1,000 community and owned cats at low or no cost. This does not include the cats that enter the adoption program in our shelter. Funding for this beneficial service comes from philanthropic grants and you, our donors.
