In almost every case, we require the stray or feral cat you request help with to be seen at our donation-based, nonprofit clinic. It is in Lyle, WA, and operates once or twice a week. Clinics fill up fast, so we advise you to schedule as soon as possible.
Once at the clinic, we will assess the cat for health and temperament, and whether it is adoptable. So thevery first step to getting the cat or cats helped is to fill out our online spay/neuter appointment form clinic appointment form. Once submitted, a clinic scheduler will contact you within 24 hours to schedule your appointment. She will give you directions to the clinic as well as info on trapping the cat, if necessary.
We lend out humane traps for a refundable deposit, and when you pick it up you will be shown how to use it. (We generally do not have the personnel to trap for you but please let us know if you need help with trapping.)
Please note: If the cat has an ear tip (tip of the left ear clipped) it is probably already fixed.
If the cat is feral we can fix, vaccinate and treat it for parasites. Generally, a feral will have to go back “home” and the caregiver must agree to feed and shelter it. Here's information about our Trap-Neuter-Return program.
If the cat is adoptable we can:
Fix and vaccinate it, test it for feline leukemia/FIV, treat it for parasites, and microchip it.
Intake it into our adoption system if there is room in our foster home system. WE HAVE NO SHELTER.
Thanks for helping the homeless cats of the Gorge!
