How do I get a spay/neuter voucher
Refer to our programs page for complete information on applying for vouchers. Does HCF take in stray cats or owner surrenders?
No. HCF is not an rescue/adoption organization and we do not have a shelter. Please contact your local humane organization for assistance.
I have cats living on my property and I want to take care of them. What should I do?
The most important thing is to have the cat(s) spayed or neutered and vaccinated. HCF can provide guidance on trapping the cat and help you secure financial assistance for feral/stray alters. Next, you should be sure the cat(s) have a warm, dry place to sleep and access to clean food and water. Check out the Programs page for more information on vouchers, shelters, and DIY programs.
