Sierra Vista Herald January 10, 2010

"Grant money through the state’s special license plate program will allow the Cochise County Humane Society to fund spays and neuters for those who might need assistance.

"Arizona’s Pet Plate program has awarded the society $7,500 for dog spays and neuters, along with $2,500 designated for the sterilization of free-roaming cats.

"In addition, the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office received an $8,000 grant to be used for companion animal spays and neuters. Financial assistance using Pet Plate funds is available at all mobile clinics sponsored by the Cochise County Humane Society. The procedures are performed by Animal Rural Klinic, a mobile practice that travels to Willcox, Elfrida, Whetstone, Tombstone and Sierra Vista.

"Anyone with free-roaming cats in their area or who would like to have their pets sterilized can bring them to one of the ARK clinics for spaying or neutering.

“"We ask that you call first to make an appointment and arrange for financial assistance, if it’s needed,” Redding said. “The number is (520) 803-7385.” "

Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals

The NCFF Program through the Fort Collins Cat Rescue was started in February of 2009 in an attempt to help feral cat colony caretakers get their cats neutered. There are a large number of kindhearted people in Larimer County who feed feral cats. Some manage to trap them and have them spayed or neutered, but many find it difficult, don't have traps, the trapping know-how, or the funds available to pay for the surgery. The NCFF group is comprised entirely of generous volunteer trappers, veterinarians and clinic assistants who give their time once a month to this program. Cats are trapped, transported to the clinic for their surgery, held overnight for observation and returned to their colonies the following day.

Schedule for Upcoming TNR Days:

Feb 28, 2010 - surgeries will be at Larimer Humane Society
March 21, 2010 - surgery location TBD
April 18, 2010 - surgery location TBD

Please contact to get more details, or contact Leslie by phone at 224-1467.

Calistoga Cat Action Team

Weekly Calistogan February 4, 2010

"Casey and Sherrill are only two of several local residents who for years have taken the time to care for the feral population of cats in Calistoga.

“"We do it for the love of the animals, all of us do, and over the years we’ve been very effective,” Casey said. “What I can tell you is that those of us involved in C-CAT were also on the board of its predecessor organization, the Upvalley Spay/Neuter Network, and that means that we have been working on stemming the tide of kitty overpopulation for around 10 years in Calistoga — and it has made a significant difference.”

"It’s the “TNR” (Trap-Neuter-Return) approach that works. The cats who are trapped, spayed or neutered, then released back to where they live, have a volunteer assigned to be their guardian angel, according to Casey.

"A “guardian angel” is someone who feeds and puts out water (and sometimes a shelter) every day or evening, and keeps an eye on their health. As a group, C-CAT helps provide food and emergency health care for these cats, who often live in colonies.

"When you do see a feral cat around the community, look closely at its ears. If one has had an ear tip clipped, that’s a sure sign it’s being taken care of, and has been spayed or neutered.

“"These cats are now well-fed, have rabies shots, have been cleaned up,” Casey said. “They no longer roam and fight because of raging hormones, and instead of living wild, they can focus on having a decent life.

“"Most of our colonies have a regular person the cats come to know and appreciate for the attention that person brings to them,” she continued. “I feed three colonies at the present time, and I’ve had my largest colony for 10 years. Those cats wait for me and want attention as much as they want food. The business on whose premises these cats live has not had a rodent problem for 10 years, either.”

"About two years ago C-CAT leaders estimated that during the previous five years they had trapped and provided spaying/neutering services for nearly 600 feral cats living in colonies in the Calistoga area, plus many more cats owned by individuals. Anyone who needs these services may call 942-0101.

"Casey and her colleagues in C-CAT have made substantial progress in reducing the population of feral cats in the Calistoga area, but much work lies ahead and they’ll need money to continue.

“"Because people fail to get their pet cats spayed and neutered, populations periodically spike and we need to keep working on it,” Casey said. “Anyone who needs our help with spay/neuter services should call our new number, 942-0101. We also would love to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer to help us with trapping or with feeding a managed colony!”"

Florida-Miami-south Florida-

The Clydey Foundation

"Each year thousands of South Florida pets are euthanized because their owners cannot afford critical medical care. Other pets suffer needlessly because only substandard care is available to their owners.

"The Clydey Foundation funds medical care for pets whose owners could not otherwise afford it. We also partner with Animal Clinics and Pet Rescue to find homes for abandoned pets."

The Clydey Foundation is a non profit organization setup to help animals receive the medical care they need and deserve.  We work with organizations around Florida that rescue stray animals from the dangers of living on the streets.  With our help these defenseless "little beings" can receive medical care and shelter until a new home is found for them.

The Clydey Foundation through its partnerships with Animal Clinics will provide money to help families get the medical care for their loved ones,  to many times a little ones life is cut short because people cannot afford treatment for their baby.  The Foundation will help save thousands of lives by assisting families in offsetting the cost of medical care.

The Clydey Foundation was setup to help deal with the issues our little friends face on a daily basis through donations and contributions we can make a difference.  We have helped rescue and provide medical treatment for several little guys, but more needs to be done to combat this problem and with a little help we can continue to make a difference.

Mobile Spay & Neuter Clinic--also offers vaccinations, heartworm testing and meds, deworming meds, some dental procedures along with other types of necessary surgeries for dogs, cats, and rabbits.

Feral cats are most welcome!

"Trap-Neuter-Return programs combined with responsible management are the most viable, long-term approach available at this time to reduce feral cat populations. By utilizing the Mobile Unit The Clydey Foundation can help to prevent the growth of feral colonies with the help of the community.  Responsible management of existing feral cat colonies should include: humane trapping, sterilization, rabies vaccination, and treatment for illness or injury; removal of kittens and friendly adults for possible placement in homes; euthanasia of animals whose suffering cannot be alleviated; ear-tipping and returning ferals to the same location where they were trapped provided they would not face imminent risks; and providing lifelong care consisting of adequate food, water, and shelter as well as regular monitoring of the colony for sickness, injury, and the arrival of new animals. The goal of any feral cat management program should be to maximize quality of life for the cats and to eliminate the existing colony over time through attrition."

Miami Herald February 10, 2010

"In an effort to help control the pet overpopulation problem, The Clydey Foundation and Miami-Dade Animal Services said they will offer donor-subsidized ($30 owner co-pay) spay/neuter services for dogs, every Tuesday, in the Clydey Foundation Mobile Unit stationed at the Animal Services shelter at 7401 NW 74th St., in Miami.

"You may check in at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesdays.

"Requirements: Proof of current rabies vaccination for dogs over four months of age. Rabies vaccine can be obtained the day of surgery for $10 (or $3 if qualified low-income).

"Up to four dogs may be spayed or neutered per household; each must be two months and older.

"Dogs may not have any food or water after midnight the night before.

"No appointment is necessary. The veterinarian may decline surgery due to health reasons."

The only contact information found on their website is the phone number for spay and neuter-954-298-4545-and their contact page link.

Vermont-Windham county-

Windham County Humane Society
916 West River Road
PO Box 397
Brattleboro, VT 05302
Phone: 802 254 2232
Fax: 802 254 3680

Rabies Clinics

Each year, with the cooperation of local veterinarians, the WCHS operates low-cost rabies clinics throughout Windham County. Rabies is on the rise in Vermont and can be deadly for pets and humans, so don't neglect to have your pet vaccinated. Call or check the Scheduled Events page to find out when our next clinic will be held.

The Windham County Humane Society is partnering with Dr. Sara White of Spay ASAP to offer low-cost spay/neuter clinics to residents of Windham County.

In addition, the Vermont Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP) enables income eligible people that provide care for cats and dogs to receive financial assistance to have these animals neutered and vaccinated. Most of the vets in the area are part of the program which only charges $25 for spaying or neutering. Call WCHS to request an application.

More information and schedule is at the link above.

Brattleboro Reformer February 24, 2010

BRATTLEBORO -- "When local farmer Dean Hamilton heard the Windham County Humane Society was spaying and neutering feral cats for free, he knew it presented him with a perfect opportunity to fix his growing problem.

"With 30 house cats and another 30 living in his barn, Hamilton was faced with an impressive but unwanted increase in his local cat population.

"Thankfully for him, the Vermont Humane Federation recently secured a $50,000 grant making it possible for animal lovers to help control the cat population at no cost to them.

"The grant is available to Vermont Humane Society member shelters throughout Vermont, but local shelter was the first to take advantage of the program.

"The only catch, said Annie Guion, executive director of the Windham County Humane Society, is that people have to be willing to trap the cats and bring them in. The Humane Society will provide live traps and cages.

"Guion will continue to host 18 similar clinics every month. Twelve, she said, will be for pets only. Generally the procedure runs between $30 and $40 -- less than a third of what many veterinarians charge -- but cat owners have to be eligible for the assistance.

"I"f they can afford the vet, then we want them to go to the vet," Guion said.

""Most people want to do right by their animals and don’t mind helping us do that," she added. "We’re a nonprofit, and we’re just asking people to pull their own weight while we provide a lot of assistance."

"In addition, six TNR (Trap Neuter Release) clinics will be held specially for feral or free-roaming cats.

""People can call and we can set something up," Guion said."
