Bring your cat in a carrier to our business office Tuesday-Friday from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. or Wednesday until 7 p.m. from now until August 18. You can also go to either of the other two agencies during their business hours. You must bring proof of your cat spay or neuter surgery to purchase the microchipRead FAQ's about the program.
