BERG REGENIER, Md., August 10, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Alley Cat Rescue, Inc.’s Feral Fix Challenge will run until the end of 2021 and veterinarians / clinics will still be able to register to participate. The Feral Fix Challenge is an annual global event that brings veterinarians and communities together to save the lives of cats. The challenge invites veterinarians to participate in the Trap-Neuter Return (TNR) by offering free-range cats an inexpensive or free neuter / neuter and rabies vaccination. In its eleventh year, the annual challenge has resulted in over 130,000 cats being neutered or neutered by more than 1,500 veterinary participants. Veterinarians in all of the following countries took part in the campaign: USA, Canada, South Africa, Namibia, Greece, Israel, Japan, Croatia, Antigua, Nicaragua, Indiawho have favourited United Arab Emirates
It is estimated that 860,000 cats are euthanized in U.S. animal shelters each year, many of which are newborn kittens or unsocialized free-range cats. The two go hand in hand, as 80% of the kittens that come to the shelter each year are born from free-range cats. Both groups often require a significant investment of time and resources beyond the capabilities of an animal shelter before they can be adopted. The influx of kittens during the spring and summer months, also known as the kitten season, expands the shelters to the breaking point, leading to the euthanasia of healthy cats and kittens just to make room for new arrivals every day.
“It is a tragedy that 2,500 cats and kittens are killed every day in our shelters, places that are intended to serve as temporary havens and sanctuaries for cats in need,” said Louise Holton, President and Founder of Alley Cat Rescue. “The best way to reduce the number of kittens flocking to shelters is to spay and neuter free-range cats outdoors. When the breeding cycle is stopped, unwanted kittens are not born and the adult cat benefits too The Health.” It has been shown that targeted TNR programs significantly reduce accommodation uptake and euthanasia rates.
