No, this is not about a cat show.
This is about a wonderful event planned in the Ontario, CA area to aid in the feline overpopulation problem. This event addresses the sad, sad reality that over 2 million cats and kittens in shelters across America are humanely euthanized each year. And cats are more likely to be put down because of lack of identification.
On Wednesday & Thursday, the 17th & 18th of August, the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. along with Pet Connections Inc. are hosting the “Big Meow”. This is a no-cost spay and neuter event for owned, outdoor cats (females on Wed., males on Thurs.). Funding is by local, caring donors in the community.
Cats participating must be between 4 months and 7 years old and live in the S.P.C.A. service area of Chino, Claremont, Diamond Bar, La Verne, Montclair, Ontario, Pomona and San Dimas. Owners must provide proof of residency.
Qualified owners are encouraged to call for an appointment and more information at 909-623-9777, ext. 669. Inland Valley Humane Society is located at 500 Humane Way, Pomona 91766.
Hats off to this group for providing this service. Maybe other caring people will take the chance to be more proactive and the “Big Meow” could take off across the country!!
