Due to overpopulation, millions of healthy loving cats and kittens face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, animals and cruel humans. To stop the suffering spay and neuter your pets!
Kindred Kitties offers a low cost spay/neuter program with the help and generosity of several area vets.
You would drop off the cat(s) at our downtown Kenosha location. For this program, you would contact Cathy at 262-605-0533 to make appointment and get more details.
For people looking to spay/neuter feral kitties residing in their area, traps are available for you to borrow with a deposit.
Neutering/spaying will not make your pet fat and lazy. Pets get fat and lazy because they are fed too much and don’t get enough exercise.
Neuter your male cat to help prevent injuries and disease. Unaltered male cats tend to get into catfights over females and territory. It is virtually impossible to keep two or more unaltered male cats together. Unaltered males will roam long distances if left outside. This means they will leave home for days on end placing themselves in danger as they are more likely to be hit by a car, poisoned, or be hurt by dogs and people. Neutering your male cat takes this desire away. The benefits of neutering a male are so significant, that it is possible to say that unaltered male cats cannot make good house pets.
Spay your female cat to prevent tumors and infections of the ovaries and uterus. Spaying also greatly decreases the risk for mammary cancer, and avoids the hassle of a female cat in heat. Spaying your female cat will prevent unwanted litters. If your cat gives birth, you are the one faced with the task of finding new homes for the kittens. Cats in heat can be very vocal and will attract male cats. If she does not mate she will go into heat again every few weeks. Medical evidence shows that females spayed before their first heat are typically healthier.
An unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total:

4 years: 2,107
5 years: 11,801
6 years: 66,088
