You've been hearing us say it for years: Spaying and neutering is the one sure way to end pet overpopulation. But is this decades-old call to spay and neuter working? Yes!
Nationwide, populations of puppies and kittens are down. And thanks to your generous donations and our amazing foster families, Baypath has also made significant strides in managing our local pet population challenges. In just the last 12 months, we:
Spayed and neutered 700 dogs and cats prior to adoption
Secured a grant to trap, neuter, and release stray and feral cats across the community
Helped get 107 stray and feral cats spayed/neutered
Offered free/discounted spay and neuter services to local residents through our rescue
Expanded our foster family program to care for more pregnant cats and their kittens
Found loving homes for 300 kittens
Recently, your support enabled us to help three adorable kittens, Loki, Freya, and Fenris, who were found abandoned in a garage. The 3-week-old kittens were frightened, malnourished, and far too young to be on their own. To help the little ones recover, we decided to see if one of our nursing cats would care for them.
Although mama cat Eden was already caring for her own four kittens, she took in Loki, Freya, and Fenris and nursed them back to health. Within a matter of weeks, all furry bundles of joy were strong and healthy, and soon found loving families.
