Wow! The team at Stray Paws Animal Haven is blown away by the response we’ve received from last week’s call for help to catch up on 500 spay/neuter procedures on the waitlist.
We have raised more than $12,000 to date!
Enormous thanks to everyone who has stepped up to sponsor the clinics we need to catch up.
Four clinics are now scheduled and we have 11 more to go. We can do this. With your help.
In case you missed the first email about our current crisis, we have temporarily suspended our spay/neuter appointments for cats trapped via TNR (trap, neuter, return). We are 500 cats behind.
We are currently spaying/neutering cats four days a week for a total of 140 cats weekly at the SPAH’s facility in South El Monte and in the surrounding Los Angeles County area.
With one additional day for the next 15 weeks, we will prevent 500 cats from breeding and having yet more unwanted litters.
If you haven’t yet given, I am hoping you’ll come to the rescue with any amount.
Together we can fix this dire situation. I say “dire” because if we don’t get 500 cats spayed and neutered, they will keep breeding and the problem will grow exponentially.
For a spay-neuter surgery day, $2,500 covers the surgical supplies, medication, and staff including a veterinarian, an RVT, and a vet tech, treating up to 35 animals. Without the vouchers that Los Angeles Animal Services offers, it’s even more costly.
Can I count on you to contribute toward the sponsorship of 11 more spay/neuter clinics to get us beyond this crisis?
Think of the good you can do not only for the felines but for the neighborhoods that are so negatively affected by feral cat colonies.
Thank you for your compassion and support.

PS. If you are able to sponsor a one-day clinic for $2,500, we will name the spay/neuter clinic after your pet past or present. Again, any amount will get us past this crisis soon.
