After months of fielding requests for Prevent a Litter coupons for our local SPCA group and having to relegate these requests to waiting lists for lack of funds, we have finally raised enough money to issue some cat spay/neuter coupons. We have tried unsuccessfully to acquire grant money for this purpose...grants are few and far between and the competition is fierce. Anyway, I am so happy to be able to start working down the list and helping people do the right thing for their pets. Of course this is just a drop in the bucket considering the enormous need for financial assistance given the economy, not to mention we are coming up on the spring "kitten explosion"...but every little bit helps! Now if we could just get the final approval for the grant we are being considered for that would enable us to issue coupons for dogs again I would be HAPPY TO THE MAX!!! In the meantime I'm grateful to belong to my small, dedicated, group of friends who refuse to become discouraged and keep doing everything possible with what talents and resources we have.
