Public Vet’s Neuter Scooter to Return to Knox this Weekend

Due to the incredible success of the event that was held in April, Public Vet’s Neuter Scooter Mobile Clinic will be returning to the City of Knox.

The program provides an integral service that helps keep the feral cat population in check. Mayor Dennis Estok previously reported that more than 130 cats were registered for the last Neuter Scooter Mobile Clinic.

According to the organization’s website, the Neuter Scooter will be in Knox from Friday, June 15th until Monday, June 18th. As a reminder, the exact location of the mobile clinic is not revealed until online registration is completed.

At Tuesday night’s Knox City Council meeting, the Mayor reminded individuals in attendance that this procedure was implemented since the organization had problems in the past with people dumping cats off at the site without paying for the services first.

The cost is $50 for each domesticated cat. Other services such as rabies vaccinations, flea and ear mite treatment and de-worming are also available for an additional fee.

If a cat is determined to be feral by Neuter Scooter Staff, the cost is $20. If you plan to bring in any feral cats, which are animals that are wild – not just cats that simply live outdoors, visit the organization’s website for additional information.

Once cat owners complete online registration, they will be given an arrival time, the location of the clinic and all pre-surgery and transporting instructions. Registration can be completed online at NeuterScooter.com. If you have any additional questions, contact the Mayor’s Office at 574-772-4553.
