What We Are
Purple Cat is a mobile veterinary surgical suite providing low-cost, high-quality cat spays and cat neuters to cats in need in Northwest Wisconsin. Many of our clients are big hearted folks with a cat population out of control from years of reproducing. These cats may be living on dairy farms, hiding in the alley or in an abandoned shelter at the trailer court.
Purple Cat works very closely with area humane societies and animal shelters in educating the public about the heartbreaking results of not spaying and neutering our cats. Did you know that on average, 70% of cats that enter animal shelters are euthanized? Most of these are euthanized for reasons other than being sick. The supply of adopatable cats in our shelters greatly outweigh the number of people looking to adopt. Please help us get the word out to spay and neuter our outdoor cats.
We do our surgeries on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only.
