I'm Back In Business (Limited)

Friday, March 05, 2010

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.

    That is such a wonderful and worthy cause to work for!!! It breaks my heart to see unwanted and unloved dogs and cats that don't make it to the no kill shelter all because no one spaded or neutered their parents. I think what you are doing is awesome!

    That is excellent! What a tremendous cause. You should be all so proud for your accomplishments. I am thankful for you and your friends with such dedication to make this possible.

    Good for you!! And how timely - I have a cat who is heading off to the vet in about a half an hour to get spayed. She stays outside now and doesn't like her children anymore so she is NOT happy about having to spend the night in the house. And none of them are very happy because there is no food for them until I leave with her. I have a not very happy household right now. But soon it will be better.
