First up: The good people at FixNation. Hi, my name is Amy Tenowich and welcome to It's Cool To Care. In this video blog I'll be hanging out with some awesome SoCal do-gooders who are making a difference in their communities. Maybe they'll inspire you to pitch in, or even just see the things around you with more open eyes.
The SPCA says that in 7 years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats! Caring folks who take the time to humanely trap homeless street cats have been bringing them to FixNation for free spaying/neutering since July 2007. Prior to FixNation, the founders ran bimonthly Best Friends Catnippers sterilization clinics, but realized that they needed a daily operation in order to really address the problem of more kitties than homes. These wild colonies of cats often start when people either abandon their tame, unaltered felines, or when they let them roam. Spayed/neutered cats also live longer, and have a lower incidence of cancers and infections.
Visit the FixNation's website and learn how to help some forgotten kitties in need!
