Hawaiian Humane Society’s “Feline Fix” offers $10 cat sterilizations to West Oahu community | Community Spirit
Thousands of cats arrive at Hawaiian Humane Society every month. In an effort to get as many neighborhood cats fixed as possible, the Humane Society is embarking on an aggressive sterilization effort targeted to the West Oahu community. The Humane Society will offer $10 “Feline Fix” spay/neuter surgeries for 100 feral cats in ONE DAY on Sunday, May 6, at Nanakuli High School.
Donations will be accepted along with Humane Society “wish list” items, which include: canned kitten food, cat toys and Kong dog toys, dog/cat nail clippers, kitty litter, shoe boxes and towels (full wish list can be found at www.hawaiianhumane.org).
The Humane Society’s Feline Fix is made possible through a $25,000 grant from ABC Stores and Humane Society donors. Appointments are being accepted now for the May 6 surgery at 356-2215 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cats must be more than eight weeks old, weigh more than two pounds and be delivered in a cat carrier or humane trap. Humane cat traps are available for sale and on loan at the Humane Society (call 356-2285 or visit http://www.hawaiianhumanesociety.org/humane-traps.html for more information). SAME DAY drop-off and pick-up will be at Nanakuli High School.
“About 19 percent of Oahu residents own a cat and 17 percent are feeding a cat they don’t consider their own,” says Pamela Burns, Hawaiian Humane Society president and CEO. “The Humane Society urges cat owners to keep their felines indoors for their pet’s safety and to protect birds and other wildlife. Most importantly, all cats allowed outside – even those residents may be feeding but do not claim as their own – need to be sterilized.”
On Oahu, the Hawaiian Humane Society shelters, rescues, adopts and welcomes animals all day, every day. We protect animals from abuse, find families for homeless pets, and teach children about compassion for animals. As an independent nonprofit that receives no funding from mainland animal welfare organizations such as HSUS and ASPCA, 100% of donations stay in the islands for the benefit of Hawaii’s animals and people.
