From February 14-March 17, 2010, very low cost cat spays ($25) and neuters ($10) will be offered and underwritten by several area animal rescue groups. These fees are unprecedented for their low amount. Targeted will be low-income apartments and housing areas, but anyone can take advantage of this program. If you know someone whose cat is unaltered, please tell them of this opportunity.
I just returned from the island of Kauai where I visited the Kauai Humane Society twice. The shelter is a very nice facility and the only one on the island. They house around 50 cats. I was impressed by the 3 cat rooms I visited where all the cats free roam and have outdoor enclosures with plenty of fresh air and backs up to a lovely courtyard. The cats I met seemed happy and were mostly friendly wanting to get on my lap and spend time with me. If you happen to visit Kauai, I would recommend you stop by the shelter and check it out. I’m sure the cats would appreciate a visit from you as well!
