Our vision is to have a community where no kittens are born wild on the street, no cat  capable of living in a home is lacking one, and no feral cats are wanting for food, water,  and appropriate care and concern.

Yesterday was World Spay Day, a day that shines a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters. In celebration, we want to thank everyone who has spayed and neutered their pets and outside cats. The progress we've made as a community is thanks to you!

Hugs & Purrs to Joel Hailey and the Hailey Foundation for showing the film "Ten Lives, A Feral Cat Odyssey" last night at their annual Spay Day Banquet! SAFCC was well-represented and the packed room was informed about what we do!

Successful mass-trapping at mobile home community on Valentine's Day 

SpaySA asked SAFCC to select a location for a 30-cat TNR project for SNAP's mobile clinic. Our "fabulous 4" SAFCC trappers pictured here trapped all day on Feb 13 and delivered cats on a rainy Valentine's Day morning to the SNAP mobile clinic on site for spay/neuter. All cats did well and have been returned to their lots where trapped. 

Many thanks to Cathy McCoy and SpaySA for selecting SAFCC for this project; to SNAP's wonderful vet crew who worked tirelessly all day; and to our wonderful trappers: Susan Schmahlenberger, Virginia Brown, Chris Bigelow, Donna Dickerson and Kay Keane (not pictured)! Click HERE for all pics from this project.

Thanks, everyone, for a job well done! There are 30 cats that celebrated Valentine's Day by starting a happier, healthier life - thanks to you, SNAP and SpaySA!
