WIFCaP in the News!

In the last ten days or so we've been super busy with the part of our mission statement that says "To educate community members on the importance of spay or neutering and to provide incentives for them to spay, neuter and vaccinate their pets...."

Its been a bit of a whirlwind of cat fur and whiskers and a whole lot of fun!  Cheryl True and I gave a presentation to a committee of the Atlantic City Council, which ended up not only on the front page of the Atlantic Telegraph, but also on two local radio stations!   Last night AVCheryl and I attended a city council meeting in Shelby Iowa to discuss a solution for their stray cat problem!

Kathy met with the owners the "The Green Spot", a new pet food store in Omaha and will be doing a basic "what is a feral cat and why do they need us" type workshop in the mid September!

And all during the while we also trapped and cared for four more kitties!

And so it goes!  WIFCaP is one year old and growing!  Its all so basic and all so easy, when you love these outdoor kitties as much as we do!  Here's hoping that this open door to education will continue and we can be a part of a solution other than needless killing and over crowding of shelters!

Thanks to any and all of you that have helped in any way at all to make our first year really great!

Real Men Love Cats!

Meet Cody!  This little man was found at Menard's Distribution Center at Shelby Iowa.  When many were ready to hoist him in a ditch, a wonderful young man named Cody, scooped him up and brought him to AVC.    We've named the kitty after our hero from Menard's.   Yesterday, he received his "spa" treatment and is recovering well.

Cody is the last kitty to be treated during our first year of service in TNR.  He is number 72 for spay or neuter!

Thank you to Cody for helping this nice kitty who we will do our best to find a furever home for!
