Last year the Okanagan Humane Society received over 900 applications for spay/neuter financial assistance from low income families. We were able to help 771 families. As of the end of April of this year we had already received over 300 applications.
Although we have no shelter or staff, we manage to adopt out in excess of 170 kittens and cats every year. These are fostered in our own homes, mostly at our own expense and are the by-product of unaltered pets. More often than not these unaltered pets produce more kittens than homes are available for, therefore they become the basis of new colonies of unwanted and forgotten felines. And the circle continues.
People turn to us when all other avenues have been exhausted. We go way above and beyond to help as many as possible but the line is always longer than our purse strings allow.
We hope to raise enough money with our golf tournament to help 100 low income families spay/neuter their pets. We can not do our work without fundraisers like this one and the fundraisers are not a success without the generous people who donate their money and their time to participate.
Please, help us reach our goal. Enter today for a fun-filled day of Texas Scramble (best ball) golf at Sunset Ranch Golf Course on June 6 at 1:00 pm (registration is at noon) and help us lower the pet overpopulation today.
Golfer fee is $150.00 per person including use of an electric golf cart and the meal. Meal only tickets are available for $50.00 each. Entry forms are also available at all Total Pet Stores.
