Dr. Gagnon is a volunteer. A group of volunteers including Dr. Gagnon and some of her staff, come together once a month to spay, neuter, and recover 150-250 cats.

Alley Cat Advocates was incorporated in 1999 as a 501©3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide for the humane treatment of unowned cats in our community. In striving to accomplish our mission, our efforts focus almost exclusively on directing a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program in the safest, most efficient and cost effective way possible.

Trap-Neuter-Return is widely (although not unanimously) accepted within the humane movement as the most effective way to stabilize and reduce the unowned cat population. It is also the most humane method. The basic strategy of TNR is to identify an unowned cat or colony of unowned cats, humanely trap them, spay/neuter them, and return them to their environment. The entire process takes from one to three days on average.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
