The cats have finally returned from ARF’s first Humane Alliance spay/neuter trip of 2014. The first January trip was delayed because of weather, and this all-cat crew got stranded in Asheville for three nights because of dangerous road conditions.

Most of these cats received free spay neuter, either through Catman2’s two-year PetSmart Charities grant, which offers free spay neuter to any cat in the 28779 delivery area (including Dillsboro, Sylva, Webster, Savannah, and parts of Balsam areas). Others received free spay neuter through ARF’s grant from the Two Mauds foundation, which fixes (for free!) pets of individuals on low-income assistance or of those who have rescued multiple roaming cats.

All pets were meticulously cared for by the outstanding staff at Asheville’s Humane Alliance, which fixes an average of 120 pets per working day. Many thanks to the multiple volunteers from the Humane Alliance, ARF and Catman2 for ensuring a safe return.

ARF has also received the second installment of its grant from PetSmart Charities, which provides free spay/neuter to any dog in the Cullowhee (including Tuckasegee and Little Canada) area.
ARF’s next all-pet spay/neuter trip is on February 3, and ARF is already taking signups for its March 3 trip (dogs and cats) as well as its February 24 all-cat trip.
