Operation: Sterile Feral
Operation Sterile Feral is a joint partnership between the Pet Adoption Center, Metro Animal of St. Louis, All Paws Rescue, and dedicated volunteers that provides low-cost spay and neuter services for feral and barn cats. For a $20 fee, each cat is vaccinated for rabies, treated for parasites and altered so that they cannot continue breeding. After the process, the cat is returned to its original environment, where a caretaker agrees to take responsibility for the animal’s welfare.
OSF is always in need of volunteers from all levels of experience within veterinary medicine. Clinics are typically held on the third Sunday of each month (except on holidays).

Missouri Volunteer Veterinary Corps
The Missouri Volunteer Veterinary Corps (MOVVC; “The Corps”) is a project of the Missouri Veterinary Medical Association. The Corps is made up of Missouri veterinarians, animal health technicians, and veterinary students who have volunteered to
respond to animal emergencies. The Emergency Management and Public Health Committee (EM and PH) of the MVMA will coordinate activities of The Corps and provide members with emergency notices and educational materials. The Corps will report its activities to the Executive Board of the MVMA through the EM and PH Committee chairperson. Emergencies may include outbreaks of exotic animal and poultry diseases or natural disasters as they affect animals, such as flood, fire or tornado or ice storm.
