February 28, 2012 (Spring Valley)--  San Diego County is estimated to have over 900,000 homeless cats in San Diego County--and Spring Valley is a hotbed for overpopulation.  Now the National Cat Protection Society (NatCat) is offering to spay/neuter the cats of Spring Valley residents for free.  As part of this free service, NatCat will also help Spring Valley residents by transporting their pets to and from the vet.
he Spring Valley NatCat shelter is located in a low income area and the hope is to reach the people in the surrounding area of the shelter.  Spring Valley residents who want to have their cats spayed or neutered can call the NatCat Spay/Neuter hotline at 619-616-8748 or they can email

The National Cat Protection Society (NatCat) has no-kill cat shelters and cat retirement centers in Spring Valley and Newport Beach. Its philosophies are below:

“As long as there are unfixed animals, healthy and adoptable animals with be euthanized in shelters.  The more animals that are spayed/neutered the lower the number of animals being euthanized in shelters will be.”
“Overpopulation issues have a devastating impact  on San Diego animals.  Through spaying and neutering, we can change the outcome for some of  those animals.”
“If you LOVE them, FIX them.”
