Fund a Fix
These residents of Happy Animals Club are in need of sponsors so they can be spayed or neutered. Thanks to a special arrangement with a local veterinary clinic, whereby we supply all the materials for the operation, we are able to get animals fixed for a lot less than before (only about 1/2 or 2/3 of normal market rates). We are no longer able to send receipts to the sponsors, and it may take a while before the operation is carried out, as materials have to be procured first, but you will still absolutely receive a post-op photo of the animal you got fixed!
