CATsNIP (Cats Altered Through Spay Neuter Island Program) is WAIF’s Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program that helps reduce the feral and free-roaming cat population on Whidbey Island. With a grant from Petco and generous donations from the community, WAIF is able to provide FREE spay/neuter surgeries once a month for feral and free-roaming cats humanely trapped in WAIF Tomahawk traps. Appointments are required to schedule spay/neuter surgeries. Surgeries take place at WAIF’s Spay/Neuter Clinic, located at 60 Rhododendron Park Road, Coupeville.

You can use WAIF Tomahawk traps with a $40 refundable cash deposit. If you have your own trap, WAIF must preapprove the use of your trap prior to scheduling surgery.
