When I was in Los Angeles earlier this month I had the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the incredible facility and operation that is FixNation. This organization, founded by Karn Myers and Mark Dodge, offers free spay/neuter services for LA’s homeless, stray and feral cats. Since opening its doors in July 2007, FixNation has sterilized and vaccinated more than 60,000 cats, and I’m fairly certain that every single one of them received outstanding care.
During my tour, I was completely blown away at the amazing care and compassion that each cat receives at FixNation. Every step in the process — from checking the cats in, to prepping them for surgery, and throughout all the procedures and recovery — the cat’s comfort and well being is the top priority. Everything they do at FixNation is for the good of the cats. I’ve really never experienced anything like it at any other facility. They do incredible work.
I’m hoping you will join me in supporting FixNation this holiday season. Due to some complications surrounding TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return, if you’re not already familiar with this procedure), some of FixNation’s funding sources have been reduced in recent years and they need our help. And here’s a little incentive, now through December 31, 2011, PetSmart Charities will match every “new donor” dollar up to $51,000. That’s a great way to double your donation! Please consider making a contribution to FixNation today!
