Homeless, hungry cats

I am very concerned about the many kittens and cats that are not adopted. Often I see local signs offering free kittens. Frequently the people who have these kittens allow their cats to reproduce over and over again. Cats that are not adopted are sometimes left outside without a home, food or care. Some will end up in shelters amid too many animals and too little funding.

The “Help Fix Me” program has funding to help people who cannot afford to have their pet neutered. The toll-free number is 1-800-367-1317. Please remember to check off the tax deduction to contribute to the Companion Animal Sterilization fund so there will be more help for people who cannot afford to have their pets sterilized. If everyone will take responsibility for their own pets, many less animals will suffer.
