October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, as it has become known internationally by animal rescuers, thanks to the committed efforts of Alley Cat Allies (http://www.alleycat.org/). It is a day to recognize the growing problems of feral cats, and their place in our lives whether we are aware of it or not. However, National Feral Cat Day is more than just thinking about the problem, it is a day of action.
Since 2010 is National Feral Cat Day’s 10th Anniversary, it only seems appropriate that Alley Cats and Angels (http://www.alleycatsandangels.org/) celebrate the day in “tens”. We will be holding a $10 spay/neuter clinic on Thursday, October 14 for ten feral cats whose caregivers cannot afford the cost of spay/neuter. Caregivers must live in Wake County.
People requesting assistance will be required to fill out a spay/neuter assistance request form (http://alleycatsandangels.org/neuterform.htm) so we can determine those that most need our help. Appointments will be made for the cats selected (based on biggest need) and we will start a wait list of the other applications and work to help them in the following weeks and months as funds are available in our Alter an Alley Cat fund.
