We are excited to announce that we have received a grant to help fund Operation Creek Cat. The grant foundation, Community Cat Podcast, will match up to $1,000 of raised funds. Additionally, Yolo SPCA has agreed to match an additional $1,000; therefore, if we raise $2,000 from community and business donations, then we will double our money to $4,000. That will help TNR an additional 150-200 cats in Winters. All donations go directly to TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release).
The fundraising period runs until Feb. 28, and so far we have raised just over $1,000 from very generous donations and the help of some wonderful businesses. Ace Hardware, Monticello Veterinary Practice and Green River Taproom all have donation jars for your spare change.
In the past year, Operation Creek Cat has spayed/neutered and vaccinated over 134 adult feral cats in Winters and an additional 41 kittens were trapped and redirected to rescue programs for adoption. Despite these efforts, the need for more TNR still exists within Winters.
If you would like to donate, please direct funds to Yolo SPCA — Operation Creek Cat. P.O. Box 510, Davis, CA 95617 or yolospca.org (direct funds specifically to OCC). If donations are received before Feb. 28, your money will be doubled thanks to our grants.
