BSN has a cooperative relationship with the Animal Birth Control Clinic (ABC), a non-profit spay/neuter clinic in Waco, about 40 minutes from Bosque County. We schedule about 60 cats and 12-15 dogs each month for spay/neuter surgeries. This service provides an affordable option for low-income pet owners in Bosque County. Getting pets to the clinic is a challenge for many families. Our transport service helps to get the pets the care they need. Scheduled cats and dogs are brought to our location in Clifton and then transported to the ABC Clinic and returned the same day. Since 2015, more than 6,000 dogs and cats have been spayed and neutered through our program.
To schedule a spay/neuter surgery for your dog or cat call 254-253-6124.
Transport to Rescue Partners
Pet overpopulation is often a geographic distribution problem – too many animals in one area and not enough in another. Because of proactive spay/neuter resources and laws, some areas of the US don’t have enough animals available for adoption families eager to offer a loving home to a rescue pet. Our program transports adoptable dogs and cats from Bosque County to locations where they can be quickly adopted. We partner with a network of rescues that provide medical care and spay/neuter surgeries prior to adoption. All our dogs and cats are vaccinated according to standard veterinary practice prior to transport. Since 2017, 3,500 Bosque County dogs and cats have found loving homes through our transport program.
Trap-Neuter-Return - TNR
Throughout Bosque County compassionate people are taking care of groups of outdoor cats. Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), the humane approach to addressing outdoor cat populations, saves cats’ lives and is effective in reducing the population of outdoor cats. People don’t want cats rounded up and killed. They want to see cat populations stabilized and appreciate when the mating behaviors of cats are stopped through spaying and neutering. TNR improves the lives of cats, addresses community concerns, reduces complaints about cat behaviors, and stops the breeding cycle. Over time, populations of fixed outdoor cats decline naturally and humanely. TNR improves the co-existence between outdoor cats and humans in our shared environment. In our TNR program, outdoor cats are humanely trapped, brought to the ABC clinic to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal sign that an outdoor cat has been neutered and vaccinated), and then returned to their outdoor home. BSN has traps available for caregivers to use in the TNR process, and provides training and support to assure the caregiver will successfully trap their cats and stop the breeding cycle.
Call 254-253-6124 if you wish to volunteer for our TNR program.
