As all of our regular readers know, we take the overwhelming majority of our cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic to be spayed/neutered. It is no exaggeration to say that they do an absolutely incredible job - we love PAWS! But occasionally we will bring one or more of our cats to the great folks at Glen Ellyn Animal Hospital for medical treatment. This is almost always a case of medical attention needed which is beyond the scope of what PAWS specializes in. For example, a tail or leg may need be amputated or an eye removed or something like that. In the course of the animal's surgery, we also have them spayed/neutered too.
These numbers of cats spayed/neutered at the Glen Ellyn Animal Hospital (12 for 2015) need to be added to our overall totals and so that's what I've done today. Our new yearly total for cats spayed/neutered for 2015 is now 1,157 and our overall total is now 8,435.
