Gloria, I forgot to add that anything not in Northampton or Accomack Counties I 
have to pay a $17 bridge toll to get to.  I  love living on the Eastern Shore 
but sometimes it is very costly.

  Wow - I have to say - we have several options here in Ark.  for $25-$40 per 
cat. And our rescue group even does some special deals for cat colonies.  Can't 
believe they don't have something better than $65 in the Virginia shore area.  

  Have you tried  Spay Virginia - ?

    The best I have found is the Virginia Beach SPCA Neuter Scooter that comes 
over to the Eastern Shore one day a month.  The cost per cat is $65 and you 
have to schedule an appointment in advance. Not sure if i have to pay in 
advance too.  That means I have to schedule a appointment then hope like heck I 
can trap one of them the day before.  The local SPCA refused to get involved 
with feral kitties.
  Thanks for your help

  I looked out there, and in the section on Vet and Neuter, they have 
absolutely nothing but veterinarians listed in my area - and we (Arkansas) have 
a bunch of options for low cost spay/neuter options.  THey don't have our cat 
rescue listed, so I submitted it.   

  I think I'd contact some local rescues to find out about s/n in Virginia - 
gotta be there somewhere....

Oops - not reading my email in sequence, sorry.  Well, hope you find something 
a lot less than $100 per.

      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
