07/20/2010.  Free GCHS & ENAH Spay/Neuter Day

MONROE – Each year, an unaltered female cat will produce an average of three litters, each with four to six kittens. Those kittens will quickly mature and produce their own litters — which in turn will mature and have more kittens. It’s a tragic cycle that results in a grim reality: Every year, millions of cats and kittens end up homeless, facing starvation, harsh conditions and needless suffering.

To help stop the cycle of cat overpopulation, the Green County Humane Society ,Monroe, and Everyone Needs a Home, South Wayne, are teaming up to offer free spays or neuters for cats owned by those with a financial need. The organizations have contracted with the Dane County Humane Society’s mobile spay/neuter unit to come to Monroe and provide alteration surgeries. So far, GCHS and ENAH teamed have been able to spay/neuter 90 cats at 3 previous events.

Residents of both Green and Lafayette counties are eligible. Spots for the free surgery day are expected to fill up fast.

There is a limit of two cats per household. Cats must be in good health and free of respiratory illness. Cats must be tame enough to be handled and must be transported in a pet carrier. Cats living in outdoor homes are eligible.

Monroe Auto Sales, 101 W. Eighth St., is donating use of its facility for the free Spay/Neuter Day. Cats must be dropped off in the morning and DCHS veterinary staff will perform the surgeries. After a short recovery period, cats will be released to their owners that afternoon.

To register, please call (608) 543-3637.

02/22/2010. Published in The Monroe Times: Thank you to spay, neuter event donors

From GCHS/ENAH
Spay and Neuter Day Task Force

February is National Prevent A Litter Month. It’s an ideal time to remember how important it is to help prevent pet overpopulation and help end the needless suffering endured by the millions of dogs and cats that end up unwanted and homeless each year.

Encouraging spaying and neutering companion animals is a top priority for both the Green County Humane Society in Monroe and Everyone Needs A Home, South Wayne. To help provide this important service to low-income residents, the organizations joined forces on Oct. 29 and again on Jan. 29 to offer Free Spay/Neuter Days. The groups contracted with the Dane County Humane Society’s mobile spay/neuter unit to come to Monroe and perform alteration surgeries on cats at no cost to pet owners with a financial need.

We were able to spay or neuter 30 cats at each event – that’s 60 cats in just two events! We offer our deepest gratitude to the many volunteers who helped put this effort together and worked at the events, as well as Monroe Auto Sales for donating the use of its facility.

A very special thanks goes to the anonymous donor who funded half the cost of our second event. Funding from the United Way, used to spay and neuter cats for Green County residents, covered the other half of the cost. A third donor has already stepped forward to help underwrite a third event, tentatively planned for this spring.

We are excited and optimistic that this financial support will help us realize our goal of offering free spay/neuter events on an ongoing, quarterly basis.

We will continue to seek sponsorship for future events, and encourage donations by businesses, groups and individuals specifically for this important initiative.

If you or someone you know has unaltered pets, please make plans to have them spayed or neutered. For Green County residents who need financial assistance, GCHS has SNAP (Spay/Neuter Assistance Program) to help defray some of the cost of surgery at your local vets’ office. Contact GCHS at 325-9600 for details.

For more information about the organizations, please visit www.greencountyhumane.org and www.everyoneneedsahome.org. For information specifically about the joint GCHS/ENAH Spay/Neuter Project, please visit www.gchsenah.org

As always, we appreciate your continued support of our efforts.
