Programs and Services
Our guiding principle is that community cats are protected by law and deserve the same care and compassion as indoor cats. Because this is so important to carry out our mission, we worked closely with the following advisors to establish the first-of-it's-kind standard of care package in the county:
- Dr. Jason Bollenbeck (Towne Animal Clinic, Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (VVMA) President- Elect)
- Dr. Melissa Derbin (Towne Animal Clinic)
- Dr. Jeff Newman (Caring Hands Animal Hospital)
Through our close vet partnerships and dedicated volunteers, we're able to ensure that every community cat that goes through one of our programs receives the following services:
- Rabies and distemper vaccinations
- Parasite treatment
- Ear tip
- Any needed antibiotics
The following programs are made possible through donor funding and the tireless efforts of our partner veterinarians and volunteers who trap, train, and educate others on how to care for community cats and kittens:
Fix Me is a mass TNR spay/neuter clinic for community cats hosted by local veterinary hospitals and staffed entirely by medical and non-medical volunteers.
These clinics are held a few times a year and the goal for each is to spay/neuter 25-100 community cats.
Fix Me Now
Fix Me Now provides affordable TNR services for community cats that have an immediate need such as sickness or injury, and the caretaker is willing to trap and transport the cats with our assistance. It is offered through these participating veterinarians:
We help you to trap, neuter, and return community cats in Loudoun County on an as-needed basis. If you need immediate assistance, please fill out our TNR Assistance Request Form and we will get back to you to assess the situation and work on a TNR plan with you.
Ear Tip Employment Agency
We work with our partner organizations to help place cats that are more suited for the outdoors and would otherwise be displaced with people and businesses that need rodent control.
