I believe that the thing that Jen is referring to is this quote that you made where you're only going to get a "promise" from the new owners and not having it done yourself. I understand all too well what you're talking about because I used to help a lot with cat rescue and I, generally, ended up with the pregnant strays. I stopped for awhile and I now have one foster left. Could you maybe do what I'm doing? I have a friend that works for one of our local shelters. I am assisting by fostering here and taking them to Petsmart on adoption day. This way the cat/kitten can get adopted through the shelter to ensure spaying/neutering. If they don't get adopted, then I bring them back here, so they never go into the shelter, and this way there is no chance of being PTS. If you don't have the financial ability (and not saying you don't, since I don't know you) to have them spayed/neutered yourself, then I thought that this might be an option.
Three of our girls (including the foster) are spayed, but the other two aren't; however, they are only about 11wks old and I don't like doing early spays. They will be spayed when ready, though.
