"We will be forever grateful to SCFAW for its kind and compassionate support and education in helping us to trap and socialize all our feral cats and kittens seven years ago. Today, we no longer have feral kittens being born each spring, but now have 5 wonderful furry little companions in our home. You have done a tremendous amount of work in our area, and have made a noticeable difference. We are happy to continue supporting SCFAW in its urgent mission to offer education and affordable spay/neuter services for companion animals. You have always been there for us, and we are glad we are able to help with a bit of support for SCFAW in return! As always, thanks for all that you do!"

Why Spay or Neuter Your Cat?
It’s not just about kitten prevention anymore!
Sadly, millions of cats and kittens are euthanized in the United States each year because there simply aren’t enough homes for all of them. As a pet owner or care-giver, you can do your part to reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens. You’ll also be helping our feline friends lead healthier and happier lives and while promoting a more enjoyable relationship between them and you.

How We Use Your Donations
Your support enables us to continue reaching out to those in need, offering resources, information, and compassionate support.
SCFAW exists through the donations of caring individuals and organizations. Without programs such as ours, the suffering of cat overpopulation and homelessness would be far more tragic, and the negative impact on our communities would be more serious.
The fees we receive from participants of our CatSNIP Clinics cover only part of our expenses. Your financial donations subsidize these fees by helping us pay our veterinary partners, medical suppliers, and our small, part-time staff.
Your financial donations also help us to cover our community outreach expenses, including website maintenance, office supplies, telephone, postage, and other administrative costs.
SCFAW is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, so donations are tax-deductible.
In addition to providing the only fool-proof method of population control, studies have found that altering your cat may increase her lifespan an average of three to five years!
Population control. Health benefits. Behavioral improvements. These are some of the many reasons to spay or neuter your cat today!
We're thrilled by these important developments, because they hold great promise for serving cats in need even more efficiently than ever before.
The Massachusetts "I'm Animal Friendly" license plate tells your community that you care about animals! This program is a cooperative arrangement between the Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) and the MA Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).
By purchasing this license plate, you will be contributing to a statewide spay/neuter funding program that directly benefits Massachusetts animals. SCFAW has been a recipient of funding through this program for several years.
