Winter Cat Campaign Rocked the House!The first Oakland Winter Cat Campaign was a big success!
In 6 months (October – March):
229 feral cats were fixed (104 males, 114 females)
1 had to be euthanized for health reasons
11 were already spayed or neutered
Spaying and neutering these cats will prevent the births of an estimated 1017 kittens this season.
Over 3 years, even with a mortality rate of 70%, that number would be 3,300.
BIG THANKS go to:
*Fix Our Ferals for all their hard work in creating and organizing the program.
*All of our volunteers (from FOF, OAS, and our own SPCA volunteers) who trapped, transported, scouted and gave lots of TLC
*The Spay/Neuter clinic staff: the volunteers had nothing but good things to say about the s/n crew.
If you are interested in joining us on the next Oakland Winter Cat Campaign, or any summer feral cat programs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to have your help!
