Pet Allies has currently discontinued spay/neuter assistance for feral and free-roaming cats because we do not have a veterinarian.

We have traps that can be loaned out for trapping cats and returning them to your colony. There is a deposit of $50 for the trap.  There is no rental fee, however, you must sign an agreement that you will not harm any animals that are trapped.

How do I catch cats I can't touch?

Why should I help these cats?

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV)

Can Pet Allies Help with Street Kittens?

I'm sorry that at this time the huge number of kittens makes it unlikely that we will be able to assist with street kittens. If you live within the City limits of Show Low, you can bring street kittens into the shelter.  We encourage you to contact us so that we can work with you on your free-roaming cat situation.  For more detailed information on placing kittens on your own visit Alley Cat Allies' website resources.
