Feral Program

The Eastern Madera SPCA supports the spay and neuter program for feral cats.

“I have feral cats around my house that need fixed, what can I do?”


Begin by calling the EMSPCA at 683-1266. EMSPCA is run by volunteers, so you will be leaving a message.

Leave your name, contact information and that you are needing to get feral cats fixed.

A volunteer will return your call and give you a Feral Number in your name, this number must be provided to us in order that the EMSPCA will pay for the spay or neutering.

  • Feral cats must be caught in a live trap, only one cat per trap is allowed.
  • Surgery spots for feral cats are by availability. Please call for an appointment.
  • You will want to trap the night before your scheduled surgery date.
  • You must arrive between 7:15 A.M. and 7:45 A.M.
  • In order to identify the feral as being altered, we notch the right ear during surgery.
  • Feral cats spend the night and are picked up the following morning.
  • Feral cats MUST be released in the same area where they were caught.
  • It is not humane to dump them in another location where they are not able to locate their food source.

Hoof N Paw rents out live traps with a $75.00 deposit that is refunded to you when the trap is returned. We have a large waiting list and usually do not have traps available immediately.

We do not accept feral cats that are brought in carriers, boxes, etc.
