420,000 Kittens

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.

Feral Cats:

The Case for TNR

 

Find out what the TNR experts are saying here:  http://www.alleycat.org/casefortnr

This fund was established at the Community Foundation of the Ozarks in 2015 where cat loving individuals can make tax deductible donations to help make a difference in the lives of felines in Southwest Missouri.
Watching Over Whiskers 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 2000+ kitties and we couldn’t have done it without YOU! The kindness and compassion YOU have shown has made all the difference and given the amazing WOW volunteers 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.
