Fur Ever Friends Inc. gives thanks


The Times-Tribune

CORBIN — Thank you, Times-Tribune, for helping us get the word out for Fur Ever Friends Inc.’s Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic held Nov. 3rd. You enabled us to reach pet owners who otherwise could not afford this very important service. We are grateful for the generosity of C.C.C. (Come-Unity Cooperative Care) in London for welcoming us to their wonderful facility.

In just one day we served 117 animals!

Woodstock Animal Foundation, a non-profit organization, brings skilled veterinary surgical teams to communities such as ours that suffer from high stray cat and dog problems. They were able to perform this service in our Tri-County area at lower cost in partnership with three dozen unpaid Fur Ever Friends’ volunteers who donated grueling hours of time and labor for logistical support such as outreach, registration, set up, recovery, cleanup and laundry.

According to University of Washington research, each unspayed cat will yield 400 surviving offspring in her lifetime. So if you do the math, the 33 cat spays performed Nov. 3 at our clinic prevented the birth of 13,200 potential stray animals!

Shelley Goldbloom,

Fur Ever Friends Inc. clinic coordinator
