Non-surgical Contraception for Cats and Dogs

What if...we could trap a colony of feral cats, give 'em all shots, then turn them loose again?  And what if one of these shots rendered the cat sterile?  Instead of surgery, the animal would have minimal time in captivity, minimal amount of handling, but all the benefits of a standard spay or neuter used by every TNR group?!?

Well, click here: Alliance for Contraception for Cats and Dogs to see what these fantastic folks are working on!  So many more animals would get sterilized if an injectable medicine can be discovered and used.  Humane and helpful, these scientists and veterinarians are working hard to find a solution to overcrowded animal shelters.

And think of the reduced cost for a non-surgical injection!  Even if it has to be administered by a licensed veterinarian, there may be no anesthesia needed, no more concerns about holding the animals for 24 or 48 hours for post-operative healing. Certainly makes sense to me!

Sweet Charlotte, loving for her forever home


I included this photo of Charlotte just because she's a lap kitty who wants a home of her own!  She was rescued by Paws for the Cause Feral Cat Rescue, and I've had the pleasure of being her lap for a few times.  She's on Petfinder!

  1. Oh, wouldn't that be wonderful! Maybe no more feral kitties will become a reality in our lifetimes! (We *do* have nine, after all.)

    Charlotte is a little doll. I hope she gets a home in time for Catmas.

  2. I saw something not too long ago about something that could be injected into testes to chemically neuter dogs. It took training and wasn't just a quick shot, but anything that's simpler than surgery and is low risk would be great.
