Spay and Neuter Stray Cats
Organized by: Barb Emig
I live in a suburb of Philadelphia, PA. I am about 10 minutes from the city. I drive through for one reason or another at least once a day and everyday, I see dozens of stray cats. There are so many of them that a family of 7 cats actual took refuge through a broken window in my friends basement. It gets very cold here in the winter and our stray cats are so many that the spaces to keep warm are limited leaving the rest out in the cold. I actually walked past a poor kitty frozen to the ground. It is heartbreaking to think of these poor animals with fur coats freezing to death or starving to death because there are more of them then there is food and warm places to sleep. I went as far as to take them in at one point, I couldn't turn one away and I wound up with 27 cats and I was in my 20's, a little young to be the crazy cat lady!! My goal is to raise enough money to help local shelters be able to afford the round up, the surgery, the recovery and the release of these poor animals back to their unforgiving environment. Spaying and neutering as many of these stray cats as possible will hopefully start to bring the population under control and give them a better chance at survival. PAWS is a big advocate in my area for this cause and I would love to be able to help even just a little. I know I am not the only animal lover and cat fanatic that feels this is a very important cause. Please find it in your hearts and wallets to help me achieve this difficult task. Even if you can only donate a few dollars, that is a few dollars we didn't have before and every little bit helps. Thanks for reading and I hope I did my part to convince you this is a worthy cause. Happy Holidays.
