Kit­ten sea­son

Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - OPINION -

Well, here it comes again. The kit­tens are com­ing, the kit­tens are com­ing!

We, Solano County Friends of An­i­mals (SCFOA) spay/ neuter hun­dreds of cats and kit­tens dur­ing the year. Just think how many more there would be if we and other res­cues didn’t do this.

Ev­ery year, thou­sands of cats and kit­tens not lucky enough to land at a res­cue like us — No Kill — are put down. Spay/ neuter is the an­swer. No one is ever turned away from SCFOA, if they need help with spay/neuter.

Of course, this all takes money — that is where you come in. Those of you who have read my let­ters know I have a “Give a Buck” pro­gram. If any­one reads this let­ter would send just one dol­lar, think how much that would be. If you can send more, that is won­der­ful. Any amount is ap­pre­ci­ated. As one gen­tle­man said “here is my dol­lar and 19 more for some that will not send any­thing.”

We are a 501c3. We have no paid staff or fa­cil­ity. We are blessed to have Pet­food Ex­press in Benicia as a part­ner. That is where we hold adop­tions on week­ends. We have sev­eral cats that are housed there un­til they go to for­ever homes and a meet and greet room that is avail­able to us dur­ing Pet­food Ex­press busi­ness hours. So ev­ery dol­lar do­nated goes di­rectly to help­ing the an­i­mals.

If you have ques­tions about us go to our Face­book page or email me, re­tire­druby@com­cast.net. Or, come see me at Fri­day adop­tions at Pet­food Ex­press in Benicia. I am there 3-6 p.m. And please help. Big or small, all dona­tions are very ap­pre­ci­ated.

And speak­ing of kit­tens, we re­ally need fos­ters. So con­tact me with any ques­tions.
