What You Need to Know about the Community Cat Program for Hall County
The Community Cat Program (CCP) is a collaboration between Hall County Animal Services (HCAS), the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) and Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS) along with other community organizations. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of undomesticated/feral cats entering the Hall County shelter system while, in turn, increasing the live release numbers for undomesticated/feral cats through free/low-cost spay/neuter.
TRAPS FOR CATS: Hall County Animal Services will be lending live/humane traps to the public on a first-come basis at no charge. Residents borrowing traps must present a driver’s license or other current photo ID with current Hall County address. Traps are available to pick up Tuesday-Saturday 9 am-5 pm. Please call or email Sherry Millili, the CCPCoordinator, at SMililli@HallCounty.org or 770-531-6832 to reserve a trap in advance. Tractor Supply also sells live/humane traps for approximately $35 each.
SURGERY FOR CATS: Through a grant from Best Friends, HSNEGA is offering a limited number of free spay/neuter surgeries for CCP cats on a first-come basis. Surgery for CCP cats will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Cats MUST be presented for surgery in a live/humane trap (see above for info on traps). No more than two cats per household will be taken in at one time. If you plan to trap more than two cats for surgery, please contact HSNEGA’s spay/neuter office at SpayNeuter@HSNEGA.org or 770-532-6617, ext. 250 to coordinate
intake for surgery.
DAY OF SURGERY: We are accepting the first 3 trapped cats that arrive for surgery. Our doors open at 7:30 am at our Healthy Pet Clinic. You will leave the cat in the car and check in by the door. If there are others in line, please space yourself 6 feet with the markers placed outside of our gated area. You will then be directed to wait in your car until a technician comes out to grab the patient. Cats MUST be picked up at 4:30 pm the day of surgery. Due to COVID-19, we cannot do any overnight stays.
The cat caretaker also must complete the form on the other side of this page and agree to the terms outlined. Please feel free to complete the information in advance and bring with you the day of surgery. Additional forms can be downloaded and printed below.
