Spay Day Clinic!

Number of cats people asked the Society to take in today (not including cats to be posted on the adoption board) :- One

I've just come out of a Committee Meeting, the focus of which is our Spay Day Clinic. We'll be setting up a clinic for a few days a week to try so that we can try and increase the number of strays we can sterilise. We really need help for this and will be putting a posting up on our website to ask for volunteers - we need committed people to help as veterinary nurses, and veterinary assistants. If a few extra veterinarians could help out too, that would be wonderful. I truly hope that volunteers will come forward and offer their assistance, because without them, it will be very difficult to run the clinic. Once the clinic is up and running though, it will be fantastic to have our own clinic where we can do stray cats and hopefully we'll be able to get faster and do more cats as time goes on!

We'll also have some new t-shirts coming out very soon. They're beautiful, thanks to the gorgeous designs offered to us by some volunteers. Hopefully, they'll be out by the first week of April and I think people will like them. A straw poll of some friends of one of the committee members showed a high approval rating.

I also spent time speaking to some of the town councils officers today. Two town councils called asking for help with three different complaints. One of them mentioned that the caregivers were doing a good job looking after the cats, but that there was one persistent complainant who had been following the caregiver around and writing complaint letters to everyone, asking them to stop her feeding. Another town council was not aware there were volunteers there, but now they've agreed to work with the volunteers before removing the cats in the area. As for the third complaint, two committee members and I will be going down on Thursday to distribute flyers to try and get information on the complaint as the complaint is anonymous. We don't normally entertain anonymous complaints, but as this one came through the town council, we will make an exception. I'll be going door to door in two different town councils covering around 110 units in each area. I can hardly wait :)

The information of this site is really important since it counts on specific details for interested in real estate. The illustration that offers on the life in Costa Rica and its people seems to me very advisable the image of the country and contributes great benefits for the tourism, business that offers many economic advantages for the country. The increase of real estate in Costa Rica during the last years is the test that Costa Rica in one of the destinies more looked for by the foreigners eager to invest in this point of exuberant beauty of flora and fauna. I also count on information referring to the subject.

Neutering, from the Latin neŇ≠ter (of neither type), is the removal of an animal's reproductive organ, either all of it or a considerably large part of it. It is the most drastic surgical procedure with sterilizing purposes. The process is also referred to as castration, or gelding in male horses; while the process in females is also called spaying.

Unlike in humans, neutering is the most common sterilizing method in animals. While many agree on the advantages of neutering as a method of birth control, the necessity and humanity of this method sportsbook (as opposed to alternative methods of birth control) and the political agendas within the debate are a subject of some controversy. In the USA, most humane societies, animal shelters, and rescue groups (not to mention numerous commercial entities) urge pet owners to have their pets "spayed or neutered" to prevent the births of unwanted litters, contributing to the overpopulation of animals. In Europe, the procedure is less commonly performed, especially in dogs.

Actually Diana, the whole concept of TNR started in Europe and then was adopted in the US.

In addition, we do know of and have met and spoken with groups in Europe (and have volunteers who work with them) and I can assure you, it is widely used. It is in Guernsey after all that sterilisation was so effective that there were no more cats born.
