Review for Rescue Ranch Inc, McRae, GA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Even though I did not bring my cats here to get fixed I'm sad to say that I find tipping a cat's ear is barbaric. Any form of mutilation is wrong. ASPCA does not agree with this form of methods and I will be contacting them.

from the ASPCA website - http://www.aspca.org/adoption/feral-cats-faq.aspx -- What is Ear-Tipping and Why Is It Important? Ear-tipping is a widely accepted means of marking a feral cat who has been spayed or neutered. It also often identifies them as being part of a colony with a caretaker. Ear-tipping is the humane surgical removal of the top quarter-inch of the left ear. The procedure is performed by a licensed veterinarian, typically during the spay/neuter surgery. Ear-tipping is completely safe and rarely requires special aftercare. Ear-tipping is especially important as it prevents an already spayed or neutered cat the stress of re-trapping and, more important, an unnecessary surgery. end ASPCA web info - begin RR comment - At the Rescue Ranch s/n clinic you have the option NOT to tip for a higher fee ($50), for low-cost ($25) & grants tipping is required.
