FERAL CAT POLICY
All feral cats will be surgically altered unless they are considered too ill to undergo surgery. All clients responsible for feral cats who are deemed too ill to undergo surgery will be contacted immediately and informed of our decision by a Clinic Manager. All feral cats who are deemed too ill to undergo surgery will be returned to the client unless the client requests euthanasia. All feral cats who are euthanized under client orders will be disposed of at client expense.
All feral cats who are healthy enough to undergo surgery will be altered and returned to the client without exception.
To ensure the safety of all animals in our care, the safety of GSHS staff, and the efficiency of our high-volume flow, all feral cats must be contained in a humane trap prior to admittance without exception.
To ensure the safety of all animals in our care, the safety of GSHS staff, and the efficiency of our high-volume flow, all cats/kittens must be in separate traps (exceptions are sometimes made for young kittens). If it is not possible to separate two cats/kittens in one trap, an additional trap must be provided for recovery purposes. If an additional trap is not provided, we will charge $120 for one of our traps and the charge will be refunded upon the return of our trap. We will refuse service if the process of sedating two cats/kittens in one trap poses a risk to the cats/kittens or staff.
Feral kittens must be at least 2 months old and weigh a minimum of 2 pounds.
All feral cats are to be clearly ear-tipped without exception. Ear tips are 3/8-1/2 inch standard. Ear-tipping helps identify cats who are already altered.
GSHS defines a feral cat as un-socialized, un-handleable, fearful and un-adoptable. Stray cats who are socialized, can be handled and are adoptable will not be accepted as feral.
