Watching Over Whiskers
Springfield, Missouri | http://www.watchingoverwhiskers.org/about.html
Watching Over Whiskers (WOW) supports routine vetting to help place kitties in loving homes, as well as Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) assistance and emergency vet assistance for kitties on a case by case basis.
To date WOW has been able to TNR, vet and/or place well over 3500 kitties and we couldn’t have done it without YOU. The kindness and compassion YOU have shown has made all the difference and given WOW the ability to help defenseless felines who have no voice but our own.
Follow us on this journey as we continue to work together, watching over whiskers.
Why should you get involved? Alarming Numbers!
According to a study conducted by Appalachian State University,one un-spayed female cat and one un-neutered male cat and their offspring can result in 420,000 kittens in 7 years. A female cat can have 29 litters in 10 years. A male cat can sire as many as 2,500 kittens in a single year, and a male dog can sire almost as many puppies.
Need we say more?
The pandemic in 2020 brought challenges and issues for us all and the animals suffered as the humans suffered. We had one of our biggest years yet, serving more than 935 felines. In a year when donations were down, the need was up. We had to pivot and find creative ways to raise funds and do our part to say yes as often as we could. We are counting on YOU to help us this year as it's already been a wild ride the first two months of 2021.
The positive in 2020 was the opening of the new WOW HQ - thanks 100% to donors. WOW HQ will always need your operational support to be the beacon of hope and light for felines and help WOW better serve the community.
This campaign for Give Ozarks 2021 will be focused on the need for dollars for our monthly vet bills, which average $15,000+ a MONTH- and that is with minimal ER cases. Can YOU help us get one month covered TODAY? A gift of any amount will add up to make a big difference.
