I would especially like to thank volunteer and co-president of Voices for Animals, Mary Ellen, for her extraordinary dedication and her ongoing giving of time and talent to help the cats of Charlottesville and Albemarle County and for arranging all of the feral cat clinics.
Many thanks for helping at our February 27th clinic.
In all, 98 cats were spayed/neutered and vaccinated, and 3 kittens were adopted.
The total number of cats done in the past 6 clinics is now 607.
Thanks to all of you who have already offered to help at our make-up clinic this coming Saturday, March 6th.
Voices for Animals wants to extend a special thanks to the CASPCA for being our partner in this project and especially Beth McPhee for her help before and during the clinics.
Thanks also to the veterinarians who performed the surgeries:
- Dr. Denae Babbit
- Dr. Nellie Bierly
- Dr. Steve Epstein
- Dr. Sandy Feldman
- Dr. Angie Ware
We appreciate the help of Dan Hay, a first year veterinary student who is the son of Dr. Hay.
Thanks also to LVTs Hillary Vannoy and Courtney Pugh for assisting in surgery and Betsy Cash in anesthesia.
Each of you volunteered at this clinic because you believe TNR is the only humane way to limit the population growth of free roaming cats. Please help us continue this work by speaking to your own personal veterinarians/vet techs and asking them to get involved.
Keep up the good work getting your friends, relatives and coworkers to volunteer at our clinics.
Thanks again for your help on February 27th and for all the ways you individually help animals in our community every day!
