LEBANON, TN. – Over 100 cats in and around Lebanon and Wilson County, Tennessee, will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated through Alley Cat Allies Feline Frenzy® events on March 18 and March 25. Over 600 more cats and kittens will be helped through ongoing food bank support. Alley Cat Allies, the leader of the global movement to protect cats and kittens, is collaborating with New Leash on Life to bring these critical, lifesaving resources to the community.

“A major goal of Feline Frenzy is to give direct help to indoor cats, community cats—unowned cats who live outdoors—and the people who care for them,” said Coryn Julien, communications director for Alley Cat Allies. “These no-cost resources are more important than ever in today’s climate, and Feline Frenzy is a big step toward helping Lebanon create significant and lasting change for cats.”

The Feline Frenzy events will provide spay and neuter surgeries, vaccinations and other needed veterinary care, optional microchips, and, for community cats, eartips for identification, all funded by Alley Cat Allies and provided in conjunction with New Leash on Life. Alley Cat Allies will also support two months’ worth of no-cost cat food at New Leash on Life’s food pantry, which is expected to help over 600 pet and community cats.

“Alley Cat Allies choosing to support the Middle Tennessee area with spay and neuter and cat food is going to make a great impact. It is literally life changing,” said Angela Chapman, director of New Leash on Life. “Spaying and neutering 100 cats and helping to feed hundreds more will have a ripple effect for years to come, helping cats stay with their families and out of shelters.”

On March 18 starting at 7:30 a.m., people can bring community cats individually in humane traps to New Leash on Life at 507 Jim Draper Blvd, Lebanon, TN 37087. The clinic on March 25 is by appointment only.

Community cats are a large percentage of the cats participating in Feline Frenzy, which provides Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Through TNR, community cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, eartipped (the universal sign that indicates a cat was part of a TNR program) and returned to their outdoor homes.

The Alley Cat Allies Feline Frenzy helps communities implement practices, programs, and policies that set the groundwork to save cats’ lives far into the future. Feline Frenzy events provide essential help in the short-term through high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter services and other care and support. In the long-term, Feline Frenzy brings together local animal protection groups, veterinarians, advocates, caregivers, policymakers and community members together to strategize ongoing programs to benefit cats and the community.
