AVAR continues spay-neuter program for cats and kittens

The continuing success of Anderson Valley Animal Rescue's free feline spay-and-neuter program is apparent as January numbers from area vets participating in the program are tallied.

The program provides applicants with a cat or kitten that has yet to be spayed or neutered a free certificate to one of four area veterinarians, who will perform the surgery free of charge in an effort to decrease the county's feral and unwanted cat population.

Three of the vets will perform the services free of charge: North State Animal Hospital, Mendocino Animal Hospital and Yokayo Veterinary Center. The fourth, Ukiah Veterinarian Hospital, performs the services free of charge, but requires purchase of the FVRCP vaccine.

The service is made possible thanks to past-board member Catherin Evenson, who died in 2007, leaving her entire estate to AVAR.

In the November the first month of the program around 220 certificates were redeemed; in December, around 175 certificates were redeemed.

In January, 211 certificates were redeemed, bringing the three-month total to 637.

The program will continue through the end of March.

Certificates are available at many area locations, including Coast Hardware, the Humane Society of Inland Mendocino County, AVAR, or by printing out the certificate below.

There is no limit to the number of cats that can be helped under the program; the main purpose is to insure anyone with a cat or anyone who knows of a cat that could use the service

Organizers stress the spay-and-neuter program only offers to pay for the surgery all aftercare and transportation must be handled by the owner. They also note the program does not place cats for foster care or adoption, it only enables owner to spaying and neuter their animals free of charge to help control the pet population.

In 2009, AVAR adopted out 515 cats and 97 dogs, all spayed in neutered. AVAR also transferred around 650 cats and around 50 dogs to its facility from Mendocino County Animal Service. In 2009, AVAR paid to spay or neuter 1197 cats including the 220 November numbers and 154 dogs.

Taro & his 3 brothers, Nath, Ever & Boo are Scottish Folds who were brought into the shelter, scared and afraid of people.

They spent 2 weeks in our bathroom and then the door was opened...

Today, 3 weeks later, you would never know they were so frightened.
They are getting ready for a long trip from California to Idaho.

Oh happy days for them all!!
