I am certain that our two kitties - Purrrcival and Purrrscilla - would not consider their day an adventure, but they did get to travel, and have new experiences. Although they did both return home... um... "missing a few parts." Our kitties are now spayed and neutered and will have happy, safe lives and not contribute to the massive over-abundance of pets.
We wanted to thank the wonderful Staff at Community Spay-Neuter Clinic in Freeport, ME for their beautiful care. We brought the kitties to Bangor VERY early in the morning and delivered them to Pete, who was his own one-man show, juggling clipboards and pet carriers in the snow. The Clinic offers FREE transport with several pick-up points. Maddrey was admiring their suturing, but was also very impressed with the kitties' new tattoos - a little green dot on their tummy - indicating that they had been "fixed." This is genius, since you can't tell except by "opening them up" if a female has been spayed - and sadly, some animals have to endure this unnecessary surgery if they wind up on the streets (our won't!) and then in the custody of Animal Control (who are really just doing their job).
Please please do encourage everyone you know to be Responsible Pet Owners - this great clinic makes any excuse impossible. And if you'd like your children to witness the birth of an animal, visit a FARM! If you'd like them to have the opportunity to play with newborn puppies or kittens, visit ANY Animal Shelter - and take one HOME!
By the way, the Clinic does have a Wish List (office supplies and blankets, easy stuff to donate) and they are about to expand to cover more of the State. Check 'em out and let's support their great cause and work.
