HCMT is in the preliminary stages of planning for our own clinic with the goal of providing up to 7000 spay/neuter surgeries per year for homeless cats in our area. This is an exciting project with far-reaching effects. Our clinic would substantially reduce the killing of feral and unadopted cats in the area shelters, provide a means to make every homeless cat colony in our area a managed colony, and would hope to make Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) a household word. In order to accomplish this goal, we need volunteers, each focused on an important part of the effort. HCMT invites you to become part of this effort because the more helping hands we have, the faster our clinic will become a reality. If you have good phone skills, good organizational skills, good people skills, or expertise related to one of the areas listed below, please consider joining us. We would love to have your help.
Call (412) 321-4060 and leave a message to indicate your interest. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement, and we look forward to working with you to end the suffering of cat overpopulation in our communities.
