March 2018 TNVR Event

We Care for Animals and Midwestern University’s Mobile Clinic hosted a Trap-Neuter-Return event over the weekend.
The Vet students were excited at the opportunity to perform a high volume spay and neuter event, for some this was their first TNR event. They performed like pro’s, you would not have guessed they were actual students.
At the end of the the event we successfully sterilized and vaccinated 62 Community Cats, we also addressed medical issues within the colonies.
The  caregivers started trapping their colonies Friday and Saturday night, and went into surgery over the weekend, I was impressed with the caregivers success in trapping, they now have peace of mind knowing their colonies are now happy and healthy with no litters of kittens in their future.
This is such a lifesaving event, no more homeless kittens and a healthy colony is what we are striving for. This is a huge relief for all involved, not only the stress on humans during mating season but the stress on the colony itself,fighting for mating rights and kitten survival does not become an issue any longer.
We were able to adopt out two kittens, take the socialized adults into rescue and  place an abandoned colony into the Western Arizona’s Humane Society’s  “Working Cat Program”.
I am grateful for the in kind donations, The Aquarius Casino provided accommodations for the Vet Staff,  Walmart donated snacks ,Safeway giving us cases of water and Domino’s Pizza made everyone a wonderful lunch.
Bullhead City has also been very proactive by proving the event space, they made sure we received all that we needed to make this a successful event.
It does take a lot of work to make this type of event happen,and I am very proud of everyone’s efforts to help our Community Cats.
