Hburg/Rockingham TNR Program

Dr. Maureen Ward, who owns Harrisonburg Animal Hospital, has started a heavily discounted TNR program in the Shenandoah Valley and we need your help!  With the help of volunteers, Veterinarians donating their surgical skills and a few donated materials- we are able to spay/neuter/vaccinate/and flea/tick treat 100 cats a month! We work closely with local organizations that are rescuing and re-homing cats, and/or assisting local families with their personal cat populations.   Each cat is sterilized, vaccinated for Feline Distemper, Leukemia and Rabies, receives an ear mite treatment if needed as well as a monthly flea/tick prevention.  They also each receive a small ear crop to assure they are identified as a sterilized cat if returned to the outdoors.  Our organization meets once a month and is entirely volunteer-based! We are able to treat between 75-100 cats per event, all dependent on the demand from the local organizations.  Despite receiving some product donations (Elanco donates Feline Distemper/Leukemia vaccines, Zoetis donates injectable antibiotics and Revolution)- the cost to maintain this event is high.  Additional costs include: Rabies vaccines, injectable anesthesia, electricity, surgical materials (gauze, suture, instruments, autoclaving materials), food and drink for volunteers, etc.  Currently each organization only pays $15/cat, which allows them to put their funding towards other needs (food/litter/sick animals/adoption events).  Please help us raise money to continue this event and possibly even lower the cost to these organizations!  All proceeds will go towards materials, drugs, vaccines and food/beverages for volunteers.  What these organizations do in our community is tremendous and beneficial.  It not only helps keep these cats healthier, but cuts down on breeding rates and over-population.  In the end, this reduces kill rates.  Any donations help!! 

**Current Organizations participating include: Cats Cradle, and Shenandoah Animal Service Center.  We are open to any non-profit organizations that work within our local communities.  Please contact Harrisonburg Animal Hospital if you are a registered Non-Profit.
