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.

Sometimes emergencies happen and we hope we have some funds and can help. Please download the WOW fund application below and submit it as soon as you can for committee review.
A new fund has been established at the Community Foundation of the Ozarks where cat loving individuals can make tax deductible donations and will work directly with area rescues, vets and individuals.
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. This page has been established for everyone to follow the story of the kitties we are able to help.
To date, WOW has been able to TNR, vet and/or place well over 1000+ kitties and we couldn’t have done it without YOU! The kindness and compassion YOU have shown has made all the difference and given Marci and 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.
