* Cat Care Clinic: In an effort to care for sick and injured cats and their distressed owners, Cat Depot opened an affordable care clinic in November 2014. Reduced prices have helped people and their pets not only in Sarasota County by the surrounding a...reas. Over 6,000 cats and kittens receive treatment each year in the Cat Care Clinic.
