Programs:

 

March 22nd will be the 1st visit by the Neuter Scooter to offer free spay/neuter to low income individuals and families who have female cats who may become pregnant this kitten season.   Some space available for male companions to receive free neuter.
 
By spaying and neutering cats and kittens of 91977, this will alleviate some of relinquishments to the south shelter and also reduce the number of the inevitable euthanasia of unwanted cats and kittens (saving tax payers $$).
