To mark World Spay Day USA this year, the North Fork Animal Welfare League has teamed up with the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation to offer a mobile spay/neuter clinic for cats on Sunday.

The Southampton Foundation’s Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic will be arriving at the Southold Animal Shelter at 8 a.m.

The clinic is run through an American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) grant.

For a minimal fee, residents can bring in their un-altered cats for surgery, with the aim of decreasing the population of unwanted cats and kittens that overcrowd shelters and neighborhoods each year, according to release from the shelter.

Volunteers and staff will also be utilizing the trap, neuter, release (TNR) program — to spay and neuter cats found in trouble areas for strays across the North Fork.
