2018 Community Cat Project
We are excited to tell everyone that in 2018, any feral or community cat being cared for by a Lincoln County resident can be spayed or neutered and vaccinated for FREE! Thanks to a generous grant, Lincoln County Animal Services is offering the Cat Fix program for Lincoln County cats. To inquire about the program or to get cats on the schedule, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828-234-9425.
Transports are scheduled in advance and you must contact the community cat coordinator to be put on the schedule. DO NOT TRAP CATS UNLESS YOU ARE ON THE SCHEDULE!
If you live outside of Lincoln County, HATS may be able to assist you with TNR. Please email us at TNR@hatsalive.org and we will get you some information. Please include your address, how many cats you have (adult, kittens, approximate age of kittens), and a phone number where you can be reached. The cost for getting a community (outdoor) cat altered and vaccinated outside of Lincoln County is $35. That cost is a reduced rate subsidized by HATS.
HATS successfully TNRd 304 cats in 2017!!
Thanks to the Charlotte Humane Society monthly transports, we were able to maximize the number of cats trapped, sterilized and vaccinated, and returned to their homes. In addition we had a number of volunteers who graciously gave their time to drive cats to nearby transports and to the clinics so that we
reached exceeded our goal of 300 cats!
The HATS TNR team works primarily in Lincoln County. Other area resources for assistance with TNR:
