Lucky Star Spokes Cat Now seven!

Hard to believe that 7 yrs ago Lucky Star was founded & Betsy named its spokescat. Trapped @ 12 weeks near the 4th of July, named for “Betsy Ross” & 1st cared for @ Basking Ridge Animal Hospital, she soon went to a foster home which became permanent.(Who could resist those eyes?)Content to remain out of the public eye, she has not let her fame go to her head! Until every cat & dog finds a home, spay/ neuter is the 1st step to a good solution for all!

“Nickels for Neuters!”
Just cut out the label below, or create your own, tape it on a jar or piggy bank & ask everyone in your household, club, school or place of business to drop in their nickels. Donate the money to your local animal shelter, S/N clinic or rescue group specifically for spay neuter. Every nickel helps & they can add up fast when everyone is collecting! (Note: Lucky Star does not accept monetary donations!!!)

NICKELS FOR NEUTERS!

All money will be donated to:

_________________________________
(enter name of rescue, shelter or S/N clinic here)

We will ask that this money be used 100% to provide spay/neuter surgeries!

4 MILLION “excess” animals are euthanized every year in the USA for lack of a home. More Spay/Neuter surgeries can make this terrible situation better.

NICKELS CAN ADD UP! LET’S GET STARTED!

Thank You
