Rescue Village is committed to providing
spay/neuter services. All animals adopted from Rescue Village
are "fixed" before they go home. If you need assistance,
we offer the following public programs:
Spay Your Mama
The “Spay Your Mama” program is geared towards individuals with a pregnant female dog or a female dog with her new puppies.
Involvement in the program will consist of agreeing to surrender the puppies at 8 weeks of age to Rescue Village, where they will be fixed, vaccinated, and put up for adoption. The “mama” will then be spayed at no cost to the participant through Petfix*. This is a win-win for both the puppies, who will easily find wonderful new homes, and the pet owner who will now not have to worry about any more unwanted litters.
To participate in the “Spay Your Mama” program, please contact Programs Coordinator, Erin Hawes, at 440.338.4819 ext. 14 or email email@example.com.
*Participation in program will be based upon Petfix qualifications. Tolearn more, visit http://www.petfixnortheastohio.org/qualifies.htm
Rescue Village endorses a feral cat population management
method called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). TNR works because
it addresses cat overpopulation where it starts – uncontrolled
reproduction. In TNR the cats are humanely trapped, brought
to Rescue Village where they are neutered, vaccinated,
and given a general medical exam. They are also eartipped
(a tiny portion of their ear is snipped) to signal that
they have been "fixed". The cats are then returned
to their outdoor home – to live out their lives in
a managed colony. They no longer reproduce and their nuisance
behaviors, like fighting, spraying and yowling are dramatically

Frequently Asked Questions
TNR is a program for anyone who has identified stray or feral unowned cats that need fixed. There is a $20 fee. You
must agree to care for the cat once it is released. Humane
traps can be rented from Rescue Village.
This program is reserved for stray and feral cats living
in outdoor colonies ONLY. Tame cats and kittens slated
for foster and adoption will be spayed/neutered through
the regular, low-cost service with PetFix and
charged the low-cost
services and fees. To view the TNR schedule, click here.
