Our first grant award

Yesterday was a great day, we received notification of award of our first grant.  So, with the funds from the grant and matching donation from a generous donor, we will be sponsoring the SNAP-NC mobile spay/neuter van for one day in the near future for a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. 

The SNAP-NC mobile van provides affordable low-cost spay/neuter ($50 for feral cats and $70 for owned pet cats - includes all vaccinations), but in this economy, even $50 or $70 is hard for many people to come up with.  So we will be providing $10 spay/neuters with Alley Cats and Angels paying the remaining fees using the grant and donation money.  However, as long as we have appointments and income criteria is met, no one will be turned away if they are unable to pay a $10 co-pay; because really those are the people that need it the most. 

We will be able to have 45 cats spayed/neutered in a single day.  This spay day will be doing a mix of owned pet cats and feral cats.  This day is targeted for lower/limited income and hardship families and appointments will be made after submission and review of our spay/neuter assistance request form.  We'll keep you posted as soon as we have the spay day date and other details (location of van, etc.) ironed out.

But right now - we are all jumping up and down doing the happy dance!  Being able to provide spay/neuter for 45 cats in one day.  Yeehaw!!!

The low cost mobile spay day is made possible by a grant from the ASPCA (
