CMSNAP Mission:

A Finer Future for Feral Felines

 

CMSNAP Vision:

To humanely reduce the feral cat population in Southwest Washington through a TNR (trap-neuter/spay-return) program and by encouraging/ assisting with the taming of young feral kittens for adoption to permanent homes, rather than resorting to euthanasia.

While our specialty and focus are on the feral cat, we realize that every feral cat has a tame cat in its history, therefore we offer our services to cat owners as well as feral caretakers.

Every pregnancy prevented improves and saves lives.

Thank you for your support in our mission.

Our Services:

  • To assist with the trapping of feral cats through the rental of traps, cages and carriers and training in their proper use.
  • Transporting cats to The Feral Cat Spay Neuter Project (FCSNP) in Lynnwood for spays/neuters and other services shown below.
  • To rent kennels for kittens to be born in so they will not be feral and the mother won’t get pregnant again.  Mother cats can get pregnant as early as 48 hours post-partum and are their most fertile during the first three weeks post-partum.  Mama can be spayed as soon as the kittens are able to eat and drink from a dish, usually at 4 weeks. The kittens may be able to go to The Almost Home Project at Kaija’s Garden and Pet in Chehalis for adoption if the mother tests negative for leukemia and FIV.

Surgeries are performed by licensed vets at FCSNP.  Caretakers/owners must sign a surgical waiver for these services.  The Cat’s Meow Spay, Neuter & Adoption Project  is in no way responsible for spays, neuters, vaccines, flea treatment or blood draws done by FCSNP.

All payment for veterinary services should be made to CMSNAP by cash or check.  CMSNAP in turn pays for all services performed by FCSNP.

FCSNP fees are as follows:

♦ Spays/Neuters
00feral/free-roaming cats(ear tips) – free

A suggested donation of $10 per cat, up to, but not exceeding, $50 per trip, should be made to The Cat’s Meow Spay, Neuter & Adoption Project  to offset fuel and maintenance on the van used to transport cats to Lynnwood.  This donation is tax-deductible.

 In the event of a clinic cancellation, CMSNAP vehicle breakdown, representative’s illness or injury, or inclement weather, etc, CMSNAP will reschedule your surgery to the next available date. CMSNAP accepts no financial liability in this case.  CMSNAP will not be held responsible for holding your cats, transporting them or making alternate arrangements for their surgeries beyond rescheduling to the next available date at the Lynnwood clinic.

FERAL CATS ARE TO BE RETURNED TO THEIR ORIGINAL TRAP LOCATION.   RELOCATING SHOULD ONLY BE DONE AFTER THEY HAVE HEALED FROM THEIR SURGERY AND MUST BE DONE PROPERLY TO ENSURE THAT THEY SUCCESSFULLY  TRANSITION TOTHEIR NEW ENVIRONMENT.

DO NOT DUMP CATS…IT IS ILLEGAL AND INHUMANE.
THEY WILL NOT KNOW WHERE THEIR FOOD AND SHELTER ARE AND MAY NOT SURVIVE.
