Last Hope spayed and neutered 62 cats at the November 16th Free TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) clinic at our Wantagh Adoption Center. Five veterinarians volunteered their time – Dr. Saver, Dr. Cummins, Dr. Bayha, Dr. Miller, Dr. Harris and Dr. Juliano. We also had the assistance of several vet techs, cat volunteers and 10 wonderful students from the Veterinary Science Class at BOCES-who joined us to learn and help out. These students plan to be future vet techs and are eager to help us in the future.
Many of the cats brought to this clinic were trapped by our volunteers. They are trapping a few different colonies, trying to stabilize the population so that spring brings fewer unwanted kittens. The rest of the cats were brought in by caring, public trappers. We even had a cat with a large hernia that one of the veterinarians repaired. There were some bittersweet moments too. A few very young kittens were rescued. Even though we are happy they were rescued, it is frustrating that there are still so many out there. Despite this revelation, Last Hope knows we are making a difference to the cats whose lives are changed for the better via our Free TNR clinics.
Thank you to Eagle Scout candidate, Joey Anselmo, and Boy Scout Troop 577 of North Bellmore for spending November 1st and 2nd cleaning our Wantagh adoption center from top to bottom, and building large, sturdy feral cat shelters, scratching posts, toy boxes and an agility hoop. Continue reading
