An Overview of the Alley Cat Guardians, by Andrew Katakis
October 12, 2012 § Leave a comment
Located in Modesto, California, the Alley Cat Guardians is a nonprofit group that was formed to provide a solution to the booming feral cat population. The organization offers low-cost spaying and neutering for homeless cats and companion cats, provided owners can demonstrate financial need. The facility hours are Monday through Thursday, from 11 to 4, during which hours spaying and neutering services are available for cats and dogs. The organization offers additional services at the time of surgery, including rabies vaccines, microchipping, and deworming.
The Alley Cat Guardians prefer that clients make appointments in advance so they can ensure adequate staffing. However, the facility does offer a walk-in vaccine clinic every Tuesday and Thursday, and one Saturday a month, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. For more information about hours of operation and services offered, visit www.alleycatguardians.com.
