We took 8 more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic today; 6 cats from the 'House of 12' (see previous blog entry) plus two others, one a 'friendly-feral' and one a 'regular' feral.
Transport was again divided between Jennifer and myself, but this time she took them down in the morning and I picked them up in the evening. The PAWS clinic is in the middle of expanding and remodling as they have recently signed an agreement with the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine to "...focus on helping animals in shelters." This program was funded by a $1.2 million grant from Maddie's Fund and I expect great things from it. In the meantime, PAWS is doing this remodling and expanding AND, at the same time, continuing to provide their spay-neuter services. I'm sure they'll be glad when the expansion work is done and they can concentrate on fulfilling their mission of a "No-Kill Chicago" (and helping us out in DuPage County, too).
With today's 8 cats, that now brings the Feral Fixers "Fix-o-meter" up to a total of 632 cats spay/neutered since our inception.
