These are some of the cats who have benefited from our spay/neuter fund for stray/free roaming cats.
Some, like Lenny and Fiona and her babies received medical support through our funding to support free roaming cats with additional medical care when necessary. Although we have funded over many cats there are too many to show on our page.

More and more needs are identified and our wonderful community is responding with donations of time, money and other resources to help meet those needs! We could not be more proud of our community and all our wonderful volunteers and generous donors!
Thanks to you, we are delivering 12,000 pounds of food every month to food banks and meals on wheels programs! While this is truly amazing, there are still hungry pets and families facing the dread of giving up beloved pets due to financial hardships.
We have plenty of volunteer opportunities- whether you want to help one time, or help meet ongoing needs, we can use your help!
One Saturday every month we meet at Brownell Library from 1-4 to make pet toys and no-sew pet beds. Contact us for upcoming dates (which we also post on our Facebook page). Bring a friend and make a fun afternoon of it! And, if you have clean, stray socks, bring those too- they are perfect for making catnip sock toys!
