Missy’s Fund- Feral Spay and Neuter Program

Donate to Rochester Hope for Pets
Choose “Missy’s Fund” when making your donation to support this feral cat program!


MissyMissy’s Fund is named after the feral cat “Missy” that gave birth to a litter of kittens on a cold, snowy April day nine years ago in the front yard of Missy’s Fund creator, Dr. Duane DeHollander. Soon after their birth, the kitten’s, Missy and the father were all trapped, spayed/neutered and returned (TNR) to their outdoor living area in his yard.

Missy and her litter brought the feral/abandoned cat problem close to home for Dr. Dehollander, he realized that feral over-population is an on-going issue that can be solved through TNR of feral colonies.


If you are working within a feral colony and need assistance with surgery costs please contact Rochester Community Animal Clinic (RCAC) for more information about how Missy’s Fund can help you!

RCAC can be reached at (585) 288-0600 or visit their website at www.rochestercommunityanimalclinic.com


Missy’s Fund is a cost-share program that relies on community donations to provide its grants. The goal of this program is to assist individuals working within the feral population by providing financial assistance to reduce the overall cost of each feral spay/neuter surgery. Grants provided are given on a case-by-case basis covering approximately half of each individual spay/neuter surgery cost. Awarded grants are only to be used for spay/neuter services, and are designated to be used only at the Rochester Community Animal Clinic.
