Spay Worcester is a task force of the Massachusetts Animal Coalition consisting of a dynamic coalition of concerned Worcester residents and animal welfare professionals.
The mission of Spay Worcester is to reduce the population of free-roaming cats in the city of Worcester through spay/neuter and public education.
Spay Worcester has been generously awarded a grant from PetSmart Charities® for targeted spay/neuter of free-roaming cats in the underserved 01603 zip code area of Worcester.

To reach Spay Worcester:
Spay Worcester was formed in 2010 when concerned Worcester residents
joined forces with animal welfare professionals from surrounding
communities. The current all-volunteer coalition includes
representatives from Worcester, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine
at Tufts University, Worcester Animal Control, the Worcester Animal
Rescue League local TNR (trap-neuter-return) groups and several other
animal welfare organizations, each bringing unique resources to the
The goal of the Spay Worcester task force is to work to
reduce the population of free-roaming cats in the city of Worcester
through spay neuter and public education. The focus of this task force
is to provide basic medical care (spay/neuter and vaccinations) for
stray cats through responsible trap-neuter-return. The task force also
seeks to provide these services for free-roaming cats that have human
homes. In addition, the task force wishes to increase available
resources for low-income spay/neuter for cats living in homes through
education and working with other organizations. We believe that all cat
populations must be addressed in order to see a decrease in Worcester’s
free-roaming cat population.
The Spay Worcester task force
directly supports MAC's mission of promoting animal welfare by helping
an underserved animal population in the city of Worcester. Spay/neuter
is an important tool in achieving MAC's welfare goals. By reducing the
free roaming cat population this program will also benefit shelters and
rescue groups working in Worcester by reducing cat intake. Additionally,
Spay Worcester is working collaboratively with the Worcester Animal
Rescue League, local rescue organizations, and other interested parties.
Spay Worcester is supported by the mayor of Worcester, the Worcester
City Council, and members of the CDC. Read an article about the program
in TuftsNow called "Feline
Fixers" and an article in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette.
