In the Philippines, it's a common thing that when cats produce an unbearable number of kittens, people put these kittens in a sack and throw them somewhere far. This is a horrible reality that we face everyday. Especially when you live in a rural area where people have little to no education about pet care and the need to spay/neuter them.
We have 12 cats now. They were strays at the start but they all started staying with us because we feed them on a regular basis. This initiative started when we realized the need to spay the female cats because they were already growing in number (and we couldn't afford it seeing how many they are). We had a hard time looking for a low-cost private vet since we have to go to the nearest city to do that. We tried going to the City Vet (because it's free!) but they refused due to the lack of proper medical apparatuses AND outdated spaying knowledge. We travelled home and almost lost hope. Then, we thought of fundraising for all the cats. We did some research and here we are. It was brilliant!
But it didn't stop there! We decided that any excess in the profit of this fundraising will then be used to spay/neuter other community cats, too! Maybe in the near future we can fully establish at least a small town shelter for strays with your help :)
For the love of cats!
