Day Before: Trap Preparation
The night before the clinic our volunteer trappers trap at colonies where caretakers have enlisted our help. Colonies range in size from 5 cats to 60 cats. Food is put in the back of humane traps and hungry cats will go in for it.We trap as many cats from the colony as possible that evening and bring then back to our clinic for the night to rest up for surgery the following day.
Day Of: Clinic
We see The Clinic as the one chance to take good care of feral cats who unlikely to ever see a vet. Not only do we neuter them, we also check for medical issues that we can address while they are at the clinic. that we can help with all in one trip. Our veterinarians perform dentals, treat tapeworms, abscesses, ear mites and many other conditions. NCFF does not charge for any of these veterinary treatments.
Day After: headed home
The day after clinic, the cats that are ready to go back home are returned. Some cats are kept in foster homes until they are healthy enough to “return to work”. Tame kittens and adults are adopted through Animal Rescue of the Rockies.
