SPCA seeks donations for Spay Neuter initative

Prince Rupert's BCSPCA branch is renewing its focus on the growing problem of the community's feral cat population, looking to the community for donations towards its Spay/Neuter program.

As the Prince Rupert branch explains the situation, the free roaming felines have become a threat to public health, at risk of poor welfare and a nuisance to members of the community.

Through the year the local branch has been working to reduce this problem with donations from McElhanney Engineering, the Pacific Coast Veterinary Hospital, a single colony caretaker, and the BCSPCA Legacy Fund.

However, a program such as this requires ongoing funding, so with that in mind the Prince Rupert
BCSPCA is looking for local residents or businesses to keep them in mind and to lend assistance with a donation to this program.

Those that do provide for a donation will receive a tax receipt. To direct your donation towards the Spay Neuter program, cheques can be made payable to the BCSPCA Prince Rupert Branch with "spay/neuter grant" in the memo line.

You can learn more about the Spay/Neuter grant program from this item from the BCSPCA website. The deadline for grant applications for 2014 is fast approaching with a deadline of December 31st further background on that deadline is available here.

Those that want more information about the program can call Anna Terebka at 250-624-2859 or by e-mail
