The TEAM Mobile Feline Unit, Connecticut’s first and only mobile spay/neuter and vaccination clinic for cats, visits Hamden on Nov. 22.
The nonprofit clinic, a national prototype, was established in 1997 to end feline overpopulation in Connecticut by making spay/neuter and vaccination services more affordable and more accessible to pet owners and to those caring for stray and feral cats. TEAM has sterilized and vaccinated more than 165,000 domestic and feral cats to date.
The services of the TEAM Mobile Feline Unit are available to any Connecticut resident caring for a domestic or feral cat. The fee of $80 per cat includes a brief exam, spay or neuter, vaccinations (rabies, distemper, upper/lower respiratory infection), nail trim and ear mite treatment (if needed). Parasite prevention and treatment is also available. Feral cat caretakers doing Trap, Neuter and Release (TNR), may be eligible for a $25 rebate off the TEAM fee.
All services are provided by licensed veterinarians. For schedule information and an appointment, call toll-free 1-888-FOR-TEAM. The TEAM Mobile Feline Unit is a project of the Vernon A. Tait All-Animal Adoption, Preservation and Rescue Fund, Inc., P.O. Box 591, Westbrook, CT 06498. Tax-deductible donations to offset costs and to help spay/neuter needy and homeless cats are greatly needed and appreciated. www.everyanimalmatters.org.
