OPERATION CATNIP — 65,000 [and Counting!] Gainesville FL Cats Neutered

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (11-14-2022) #805C: Melissa Jenkins in Gainesville Florida talks about their non-profit Operation Catnip and how they have worked for years in M.A.S.H. style clinics staffed by a team of 75 volunteers who can do up to 200 sterilizations of stray cats in a matter of hours — with each cat receiving anesthesia and pain medications, vaccinations, flea treatment and dewormers, along with ear-tipping before being returned to their colonies. Operation Catnip is the partner and beneficiary of the NY Cat Film Festival in Gainesville.
