Buddy's Feral Cat Program
Local veterinarians, technicians and volunteers team together to spay and neuter an average of 13,000 feral cats per year.
Most everyone that lives in Sarasota has been driven by Ashton Animal Clinic on the 3rd Sunday of the month and wondered, "What is going on there?"
The street is lined with cars and we have tents, tables, horse trailers and LOTS of people.
It's Buddy's Feral Cat Day!
