Community Cat Program
What You Need to Know about the Community Cat Program for Hall County
HSNEGA is experiencing a high demand for spay/neuter surgeries. In addition, due to a nationwide veterinarian shortage, HSNEGA is currently understaffed. Beginning April 1, HSNEGA will be suspending the Community Cat Program until further notice.
FREE Spay/Neuter for feral, stray or free-roaming cats thanks to a grant from the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The Community Cat Program will go back to being $50 per cat once grant monies have been used.
CCP is a collaboration between Hall County Animal Services (HCAS), Best Friends Animal Society and the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) along with other community organizations. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of undomesticated/feral cats entering the Hall County shelter system while, in turn, increasing the live release numbers for undomesticated/feral cats through low-cost spay/neuter.
TRAPS FOR CATS
Hall County Animal Services will be lending live/humane traps to the public on a first-come basis at no charge. Residents borrowing traps must present a driver’s license or other current photo ID with current Hall County address. Traps are available to pick up Tuesday-Saturday 9 am- 5 pm. Please call or email Sherry Millili, the CCPCoordinator, at SMililli@HallCounty.org or 770-531-6832 to reserve a trap in advance. Tractor Supply also sells live/humane traps for approximately $35 each.
SURGERY FOR CATS
Cats MUST be presented for surgery in a live/humane trap (see above for info on traps). Please see the calendar below for CCP surgery availability. No more than two cats per household will be taken in at one time. If you plan to trap more than two cats for surgery, please contact HSNEGA’s spay/neuter office at SpayNeuter@HSNEGA.org or 770-532-6617, ext. 250 to coordinate
intake for surgery.
DAY OF SURGERY:
We are accepting the first 4 trapped cats that arrive for surgery (see the calendar below for any changes). Our doors open at 7:30 am at our Healthy Pet Clinic. You will leave the cat in the car and check-in by the door. If there are others in line, please space yourself 6 feet with the markers placed outside of our gated area. You will then be directed to wait in your car until a technician comes out to grab the patient. Cats MUST be picked up at 4:30 pm the day of surgery. Due to COVID-19, we cannot do any overnight stays.
The cat caretaker also must complete the form on the other side of this page and agree to the terms outlined. Please feel free to complete the information in advance and bring with you the day of surgery. Additional forms can be downloaded and printed below.
