Olympia Spay/Neuter Project - Feral Cats
Organized by: Sara Scott
The Olympia Spay/Neuter Project provides services for feral animals, primarily cats, in the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater region of Washington State. We have responded to an obvious need in our community, and are in the process of acquiring the equipment and supplies necessary to provide feral cat trapping and transport to and from partner clinics.
The number of animals to be helped is enormous, and we are in desperate need of funds right now. PLEASE help us reach our goal of $3700. Contributions will directly benefit feral animals in the South Puget Sound area. All donations, big and small, are very much appreciated by everyone involved with the Olympia Spay/Neuter Project, especially by the animals who escape needless suffering!
As we purchase our own equipment we'll return the traps and supplies loaned to us by generous local individuals and nonprofit organizations. This will allow them to keep doing their great work, while we can expand our services to help even more animals. Our community network helped us get started, now we need your help to keep us going.
(This volunteer-led project is a currently a community effort, and is not run by, or directly affiliated with, a 501(c)3 organization.)
* Left unaltered, free-roaming cats continue to reproduce creating more homeless kittens. Through Spay/Neuter Return, or Trap Neuter Release (TNR) programs, free-roaming cats live out their lives without adding to the homeless cat population. According to scientific studies, free-roaming cats gain weight and live healthier lives after being altered. TNR programs are proven to stabilize and significantly reduce the size of free-roaming cat colonies. By limiting free-roaming cat populations, fewer unwanted and homeless cats are taken to shelters and euthanized.
