CATSALIVE!SLV "KITTY KOUNTER" - 584 kitties fixed!
(Since September of 2013)
THANK YOU FOR MAKING FALL 2018 SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC A SUCCESS!
We got 44 more surgeries under our belt, thanks to so many generous and supportive people! Dr. Gregg Kettering, Dr. Annie Schultz, Dr. Beth Ritchie and vet techs Ana R., Tammy K., Jennifer M., Tiffany H. and Katherine Collins, who's 'regular job' is Western Slope representative for Zoetis. She graciously volunteered her time, provided breakfast and lunch and secured donated surgical supplies and vaccines worth over $2,000! Also, a special thank you to Dana C. and Joe R. for helping wrangle the registration table.
We appreciate the use of the Saguache Community Center and are so grateful for the many people that took time out of their day to take advantage of this opportunity to control cat populations and get their kitties fixed. We also received several generous donations from participants.
THANK YOU ALL! WE COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!
New Needs Arising...
As the new year starts to mellow into summer we've seen a marked increase in the need for cat food donations to support managed feral colonies throughout the valley. By estimation, there are about 300 cats from Ft. Garland to Moffat and many points in between, living in colonies ranging in size from a few to as many as 30. And we've had several requests for assistance with emergency medical procedures for cats - owned and stray. Most of our funding is designated for spay and neuter but we also need help with these emerging needs. If you can help, please DONATE whatever you can to help San Luis Valley kitties in need!
CATSALIVE!SLV NEEDS YOU!
WE REALLY NEED caring people to get involved and volunteer for CatsAlive. If you have management and leadership skills and a desire to help valley cats and kittens in need, we would love to have you on our Board of Directors. You can help shape the future of feline welfare in the San Luis Valley.
Can you pick up food donations for us in Colorado Springs? Can you transport trapped feral cats to or from spay/neuter appointments? Can you foster a couple of abandoned cats or litter of kittens? Can you help feed and water a colony of feral cats through the winter?Please call or text Michele at 719-966-9536 if you can assist us with any of these simple but important tasks to help cats and kittens. Check out our volunteer page!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Without the help of these generous organizations and YOUR support, we cannot continue to help so many valley felines in need.
The Mission of Cats Alive!slv is to reduce the number of feral and abandoned house cats in the San Luis Valley of Colorado through vigorous spay/neuter programs and, when possible, assist finding caring homes for kittens and tame cats.
