August Edition

Thanks to the support of loyal donors like you, we've been very busy this month protecting cats around the country. Here are just a few of our current projects and successes:

Adoptable Cats: Scoop Up Ben and Jerry!
Adoptable Cat: Ben and Jerry

Pint-sized brothers Ben and Jerry come as a combo, but each kitten has his own distinct flavor of fun: caramel-colored Ben has a vanilla swirl on his chest and likes to play for hours, while stripy Jerry is most likely to be found napping on top of a cat tree or next to you on the couch. This pair is a sweet treat for any family and they get along great with kids. Scoop up Ben and Jerry and take them home with you!

Demonstrating the Need for Humane Solutions in Monessen, PA
Monessen Cats

Last weekend, Alley Cat Allies and Catnip Acres held a Spay Day for cats from Monessen, Pennsylvania. Alley Cat Allies has been working since March to combat the city’s ordinance that killed more than 30 cats—and threatens the lives of many more. The high-volume, high-quality clinic in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, neutered 78 cats! Spots in the clinic filled up almost immediately, demonstrating the huge demand for humane solutions in Monessen. Clearly, the money the city spent on killing would have been better spent providing subsidized spay and neuter in the community.

Helping Workers Keep Cats at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul
Cats in Kabul

After reading reports that the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, was debating the fate of its feral cat population, our hearts went out to the cats and to the embassy employees for whom the cats are a comfort and a reminder of home. We sent a letter to the embassy in support of employees protesting to keep the cats, along with materials explaining that feral cats are healthy and that TNR is the best solution for the entire embassy community.

Alley Cat Allies in the Field
NOVA Clinic Cat

As the only national organization dedicated to the protection of cats, we’ve been all around the country recently helping cats and their caregivers. This summer, some of our team went to Chantilly, Virginia, to TNR a colony there, while others helped out at the Spay Day we sponsored in Monessen, Pennsylvania, as part of our ongoing work there. Our president Becky Robinson spoke at gatherings and conferences in Irving, Texas, Alexandria, Virginia, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles this month, and still made it to the Spay Day too!
