Topeka Spay/Neuter Programs


Topeka Community Cat Fix (TCCF)

Community (feral, wild) cats are trapped, neutered, and returned.

  • Free of charge although donations are gladly accepted.
  • Cats are also vaccinated for rabies, treated for parasites, and their left ear is tipped so they can be recognized as having been ‘fixed’.
  • Trapping occurs once or twice a month; this is an all-volunteer organization so waits of several months for assistance are not uncommon.
  • For help with a feral cat colony call (785) 217-7151.
