SCFAW offers a variety of veterinary programs depending on your animal's needs and characteristics.
If your Pet Cat or Tame Stray needs ...
If you know of a Feral Cat that needs ...
- Spaying or neutering, we can help you at our free Feral Cat Clinics.
- An individual appointment for other medical needs, you may be eligible for a Feral Voucher.
To apply for any medical assistance for your cat, SCFAW first requires you to provide us with some pertinent information by filling out a Request for Veterinary Services Form.
The resources and guidance provided here result from many years of working with you, the dedicated pet owner. We have researched possible answers to a wide variety of your questions about your pets. The Directory addresses topics such as behavioral and medical issues, food and feeding, community-based concerns, end-of-life questions, and much more. While our Resource Directory addresses many questions you may have, it far from comprehensive.
Further, we cannot guarantee the resolution of concerns or cure for conditions regarding your pet, nor is Second Chance Fund for Animal Welfare responsible for any decisions or directions you take in addressing your pet concerns. Like you, we simply want to improve the likelihood of keeping your pet in your home and thereby maintain the vital human-animal bond that makes life more rewarding!
The first step in addressing your pet concerns is always to have your veterinarian examine the pet. If there seems to be no medical issue precipitating your pet's behavior, tools in our Resource Directory may point you in the right direction. If you feel you need to talk directly with someone live about your special situation, SCFAW volunteers are available for one-on-one counseling at 978-779-8287.
Our Community Programs assist people who are dealing with animal challenges, and provide public education on animal issues. Click on any of the following links to learn more about each type of support we offer.
