Kitten Shower Open House & Supply Drive, May 15th
Ohio Alleycat Resource is throwing a kitten shower during its
Spring Open House from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 15th. You’re
encouraged to bring toys and other items for the fur babies and for
OAR's resource center.
Check our our main 2011 OAR Wish List below! We’ll also be registered at Walmart stores and at Walmart.com / View Walmart.com Wish List
It’s also fine to just come by to coo over the little ones and
give love to our adult cats, too. We’ll have a raffle and
refreshments. Volunteers are needed to supply food and work at the
event. Contact email@example.com or call 513-575-1771.
Spay/neuter specials for kittens, moms and N.Ky.
conjunction with the kitten shower, the OAR clinic is having a $10-off
special on kitten spay/neuter May 10-13. The offer is for
kittens under 5 months or 5 pounds. (The kitten must be at least 8
weeks and 2.2 pounds.) Bring in the mother at the same time, and she
also can be fixed for $10 off. Did you know that a female cat can
go into heat and become pregnant at as young as 5 months? For male
cats, early neutering eliminates or greatly decreases unwanted
behaviors such as roaming, urine marking, fighting and aggression. Call
513-871-0185 for an appointment.
- This just in: Call now for our Cinco de Meow special. On May 5, only, surgery plus rabies vaccine is $25.
- A $10 surgery-rabies vaccine offer continues for Northern Kentucky residents.
The Neuterville Express transport has expanded its pickup areas
to Highland Heights and Burlington, with more areas coming soon.
Call the clinic number or see NeutervilleExpress.com for dates and times.
Revised OAR Mission Statement
OAR’s board adopted a revised mission statement last month to better capture what we do:
“Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic is a nonprofit
501(c)(3) organization.Our mission is to enrich the lives of cats and
communities in Greater Cincinnati by providing low-cost, high-quality
spay/neuter services for ferals, strays and pets; offering TNR
(trap-neuter-return) and other outreach programs; and running a small,
no-kill adoption center dedicated to finding loving homes.”
Thank you to our staff, volunteers, donors, clients, adopters and others who help us achieve our goals.
Welcome New Board Members
volunteers - Melissa McNally, Dave Sageser and Kathy Schwartz - are
now on the board of Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic.
They join Liz Johnson (director), George Jonson, Emily Moore and Kevin
Nester. Read the new members' bios.
Adoption Spotlight: The Queen Bree
It's no wonder that gorgeous Bree was named queen of the rescue at
OAR's Furry Valentine Party. This beauty, only 2, was rescued from
behind a Lebanon apartment complex with two kittens. She likely
was an abandoned pet, but it's beyond us how anyone could leave sweet
Bree behind. She's affectionate, curious and playful. Bree does
well with other cats, too. She'd love to be the queen of your castle!
- You can provide a forever home, too. See photos and descriptions of our available cats and kittens, then fill out an adoption questionnaire.
- Meet our residents during OAR's open hours noon-2 p.m. the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
- We also regularly have cats at the Oakely PetSmart, 3401 Alamo Ave., with OAR volunteers there from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. the first Saturday of each month.
We want to hear about community events where we can spread the word about OAR. Contact Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org with what's coming up in your area.
Events take place at OAR, 5619 Orlando Place, unless noted.
