Presidents Message Spring 2015

IN LOVING MEMORY OF CAROLINE SPRONK who passed away recently. She loved animals!

Dear Members and Friends:

Spring is so welcoming even though we experienced a mild winter. It’s wonderful to hear the birds singing, many trees are starting to bloom once again and everything looking fresh, as if for the first time.

Animals have also noticed spring. So many cats are pregnant and some have already given birth. At this time of year we keep wondering where all these kittens will go and will the mother cats who were pushed out of places when they came into heat, find forever homes?

Our society is here to help people who cannot afford the full cost of spaying or neutering their pets. Please don’t let your pets continue having litters, help is available. We are also heavily involved in a huge problem up and down the valley. This problem is feral cats in and out of cat colonies. We knew there was a large number but had no idea just how bad the situation is. Will you help us by assisting in fundraising, fostering, trapping or humane education?

We need more volunteers – selling raffle tickets or attending one or more of our fundraisers.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to the generous businesses and hardworking people who support us.

and our society in so many wonderful ways!
