SPAY NEUTER Help for Feral Cats?
Requests come in often seeking spay neuter help for feral cats. The difficult decision as to which animals to help is left solely to each Lucky Star Veterinarian. Because the problem is so big and the resources so limited, we are always seeking info on spay neuter help for ferals to pass on to caregivers. If you know of such help please Email: luckystarprogram@att.net

SPAY DAY USA IS FEB 28TH 2006
It will be here before we know it! Plan now to make this day special. Send us your ideas. Here’s what we have so far: (1) Hold a “Chore Day” (rake a lawn, shovel a drive, paint a fence, run an errand) to raise $ (2) Take your “junk” to an EBAY store and donate proceeds (3) Tell a Veterinarian about Lucky Star (print flyer off website at end of “Pledges” page) (4) Save pocket change daily from now ‘til then (5) Special occasion? Ask for spay neuter donations in lieu of gifts. More ideas & where to donate in next issue!
