How Our Program Works
We have a comprehensive Trap-Neuter-Return program for Medina County that provides feral and community cats with spay/neuter, distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, dewormer and flea/ear mite treatment. We also treat any wounds or illnesses in order to give these cats the best chance at a healthy outdoor life and prevent the spread of illness throughout their colonies.
All feral and community cats that are spayed/neutered are ear tipped to identify them as being fixed.
Many cats or kittens that are deemed adoptable are microchipped, tested for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and adopted to indoor-only homes through rescue groups that we have partnered with.
After you contact us regarding your situation, we will go over the procedures required to take your cat(s) in through our TNR program.
Medina Meow Fix incurs a cost of $60 for every cat that is fixed through this program. We ask for your donation to cover this cost. This program cannot continue without your generous support and any amount is truly appreciated. We understand that some people cannot afford this due to the number of cats that need to be fixed or due to financial constraints. We will still work with you to have your cats fixed. Recognizing the need for this service, the City of Medina is covering the costs that Medina Meow Fix incurs for it’s residents.
The entire MMF team are volunteers and do their best to help as much as they can with the trapping process. Unfortunately, we do not have the manpower to sit all day trapping cats, which is why we ask for your assistance in the TNR process.
We will provide traps for you to borrow if you do not own one, and will teach you how to use the trap.
Please also keep in mind that we receive a lot of calls and messages each day and do our best to respond as soon as we are able.
