Magic for Your Family 

Are you part of the loving family Magic is searching for? 

My name is Magic. I'm a one year old, all black male with beautiful bright green eyes - if I do say so myself!

I've got a great personality and will be my happiest when I have a loving family to call my own. I'm great with dogs and children. I don't know if I like other cats because I haven't met any yet, but I'm really easy going! I love to play with paper balls, feather toys, and look out the window.

The Collier Spay Neuter Clinic saved me from being put down, but now I just need my very own forever home! You can take me home today and give me the second chance I need.  Please, ask the CSNC staff about me today or stop by the clinic for a visit. I sure would appreciate it! 



CSNC Hosts Naples Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Days  

$5 sterilization surgeries for Naples feral and free roaming cats

We will hold a special spay/neuter event from October 14 through October 17 for Naples feral and free-roaming cats in honor of National Feral Cat Day.  We will spay/neuter and rabies vaccinate any Naples feral or free-roaming cats for a cost of only $5 each.  While under anesthesia, the cats will be ear-tipped - a small portion of the left ear will be removed to identify the cat as sterile.
This event is one of hundreds taking place across the country, to raise awareness about feral cats and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), the humane and effective method of care that improves their lives. 

Feral cats are the same species as pet cats, but live outdoors and can't be socialized to people.  Free-roaming cats have had a home and family in the past but have found themselves outdoors fending for themselves.  Sterilizing feral and free-roaming cats is essential to the TNR program, which ends the breeding cycle and makes cats better neighbors.  Cat colonies will diminish in size, rather than continue to grow unchecked.

We are indebted to our individual clinic donors for helping us to sponsor this life-saving event. 
Hundreds of local governments nationwide, including Collier and Lee counties, now have ordinances endorsing TNR, which is rapidly becoming the predominant approach to population management of feral and free-roaming cats.


To participate in CSNC's Feral Cat Day celebration, all cats must arrive at the Clinic in a humane trap between 8am and 9am. Cats will be held overnight and discharged the following morning at 7:30am. This event is limited to two cats per caregiver/trapper. Those interested should contact the clinic at 239-514-SNIP(7647) for more information and/or to make a reservation.



Halloween Safety Tips 

from ASPCA Poison Control Center 


To help assure that your whole family, including your pets, have a fun and safe Halloween, we encourage you to refresh your memory with the following reminders...


Candy - Children should understand that "hiding" their candy won't keep it safe from family pets. Candy should be stored up high and away from the reach of pets. Contact a veterinary professional right away if your pet does get into Halloween candy, especially if it contains chocolate or if it is sugar-free and contains xylitol.   


Glow Sticks - They are said to be non-toxic, but they have a very bitter taste. Pets who bite into them may begin drooling and racing around the house. A little treat or sip of milk and the taste reaction will usually stop. Make sure none of the glow stick material is on a pet's coat.  Take him or her into a dark place - a closet or windowless bathroom, for example - and see if there's any glow on the coat. Particularly look around the mouth and neck, and be sure to thoroughly wipe off with a damp cloth any spots that glow. This will help prevent the pet from licking material off their coat and having another reaction.


Anxiety - Some dogs experience intense anxiety over the large number of strangely dressed visitors. Keeping your pet away from all the trick-or-treaters may do the trick, but if you think that your pet will need something more, speak with your vet well in advance. They may recommend a sedative - and it's always a good idea to do a trial run before the big night to see how your pet will react. (Be sure to do that trial run while your vet is still open in case problems arise!)
