NEWPORT — Pawsitive Outreach Spay/Neuter Advocates, (POSNA) in partnership with the Spokanimal Clinic, is sponsoring their next spay/neuter clinic for low income pet owners on Wednesday, Sept. 20. The co-pay to spay or neuter any cat is only $25. Thanks to a generous grant from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation, that minimal charge can be reduced to just $15, for those in need of additional financial help. In situations of extreme need, or where there are many animals, all fees can be waived. Limited space is also available for dogs. The copay for them is $40, but can be reduced to just $20. thanks to the grant funding. Transportation to and from the clinic is provided at no extra charge. Have some stray cats that have turned up on your porch? “No problem”, said Glenna Mace, POSNA Outreach Coordinator. “We can help with trapping, loaning carriers; whatever is needed to take care of the problem. Please don’t wait until one or two strays have kittens and the situation gets out of control. Just one female cat and her offspring can turn into many dozens in no time. With the financial and hands on help now available, there is no reason for this to happen!” For more information or to book your appointment(s) please call Cindy at (509) 671-1427.

“Of course our clinics are a lot of work”, said Mace, “and volunteers are always needed to help with phone calls, transportation, trapping, etc. We also need volunteers to help clean our no kill shelter and spend time with our rescued cats. Donations of good quality food, unscented litter, bedding and financial donations are also very much needed and appreciated. As an all volunteer organization, all donations go directly to fund our spay/neuter clinics and to the care of our rescued animals. POSNA has rescued over two hundred animals so far this year and spayed/neutered many hundreds more. Just think what we could do with your help!” To volunteer or donate, please call Cindy at (509) 671-1427.
