Does Spay USA have a branch in your state?  In Georgia (Spay Georgia), one can 
purchase certificates which allow a huge discount at participating vets.  They 
send a list of those vets when they send your certificates.

Thanks Gloria.  So far it looks like the best I'm going to be able to do on the 
neutering is $100.   There is a chance the Tidewater SPCA Neuter Scooter will 
come over to the Eastern Shore and I could save $25.  I can afford to care for 
the 2 I have rescued.  I'll have to work on colony one cat at a time as my 
budget allows.  I am trying to recruit local sponsors to help with the cost.  
Local SPCA doesn't believe in TNR for ferals.  I just don't want to have to 
tell the vet anything when I bring in a colony kitty.

That's wonderful that you're doing this.  Would be nice if you could find a 
low-cost spay neuter clinic, or a free service, to help fund the neutering.  RE 
your question about telling the vet, I don't know.   If 2 are positive, still 
doesn't mean all the others are, although of course there's a chance. Any vet 
should be aware that if the kitty hasn't been tested, there's a potential for 
FELV or FIV.  Neutering is the key to preventing the spread of this, as I 
understand.   Least my take on it.   Hope you find a good option for low cost 
or free neutering.

I had been feeding a group of dumpster 8 kittens and ended up rescuing 2, Sissy 
and Rocket, when they were about 12 weeks old.  On their 1st vet visit both 
tested FeLV+.  I will have both retested the end of April to see if they are 
still positive.  I have them quarantined in my garage.   They are eating Iams 
canned kitten food supplemented with a Super B Complex, Lactoferrin and DMG.   
So far they are responding well and seem very healthy.  Both have had their 
kitten shots and been wormed.
If they stay positive I will either find a forever home for them or build an 
enclosure onto the garage for them.  I have 2 indoor kitties and one has CRF so 
am concerned about bringing them into the house.
My questions concern the rest of the colony which includes at least 4 adults.  
I can not take all of them in.  My plan had been to TNR the colony 
(trap/neuter/release). The vet is recommending euthanizing the entire colony if 
these 2 stay positive.  I am not sure where I will be able to get then neutered 
if they are positive.  And I can not trap them just to have them euthanized.  
That may be the best thing to do but I just can't do it.  Is there any info on 
how to deal with a FeLV+ feral colony?  Any advise on how to get them neutered? 
 Am I obligated to tell the vet about the potential for FeLV when having them
