Summary

SAVECats provides free spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, and ear tipping to community/feral/homeless cats in Anne Arundel County, MD. The goal of this project is to increase our geographic scope and level of veterinary assistance to low-income parts in Maryland and adjoining states. This way, we ensure full and proper vet care for the cats that come to us, help decreasing cat over-population and increasing cat quality of life. With your help, we can save all cats.

Challenge

Every day, across Maryland and the world, animals are abandoned, left homeless, or born feral. Animal overpopulation can increase the spread of zoonotic disease, frustrate social networks, and cause unnecessary euthanasia at animal shelters. In 2019, in Anne Arundel County alone, there were approximately 54,598 companion outdoor cats and 81,896 feral/community cats. We need to have an aggressive, proactive program to address this overpopulation problem.

Solution

SAVECats is the right program to solve the overpopulation problem. SAVECats, a program operated and funded through Rude Ranch Animal Rescue and its clinic, Spay Spa & Neuter Nook, has provided - and continues to provide - homeless companion and feral cats the spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, medical care, and sanctuary they desperately need - and promotes community cat awareness and advocacy.

Long-Term Impact

In 2017, Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control (AACACC) impounded and euthanized 503 feral/community cats. In 2019, AACACC impounded and euthanized 223 feral/community cats. This equates to a 55% decrease in recorded euthanasia numbers since SAVECats began --- a direct result of SAVECats and a strong indication of its efficacy. We are confident that SAVECats can help adjacent communities reduce the overpopulation problem, increase cat quality of life, and promote a no-kill animal culture.
