Special Holiday Giving

Join us this holiday season by donating to our spay/neuter efforts, particularly for feral cat colonies.  By you helping us, we are able to help the caretakers with spaying/neutering the colonies they are feeding.  The need to curb the cat population is huge, and every cat fixed means hundreds of kittens not born.  This benefits the cats, the caretakers, and the community.  All donations are tax-deductible.
