MRFRS is a nationally recognized, non-profit volunteer organization committed to ensuring the health and welfare of feral and domestic cats and kittens by promoting proactive, compassionate, no-kill programs. The van travels to locations such as local humane societies, schools, town/city halls and other central locations and provides high-volume, low cost spay/neuter services to cats and kittens. Low-cost vaccines and micro-chipping services and other veterinary services are also provided. The pet owners drop their cats and kittens off at the van location in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. The Spay Mass Van operates five days a week and travels to numerous locations in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. Since 1992, MRFRS has adopted out 13,800 cats and kittens, spayed/neutered 6,800 feral cats, and sterilized 1,000 cats through their low-cost programs.
