Wow YOU made it happen

A huge thank you to the 187 Idaho Gives donors who donated through Idaho Gives, mailed in checks, PayPal and Venmo who helped raise $18,775 + $245 donations after midnight 5/4/2023 to a grand total of $19,020 (95% of our $20,000 goal).

You helped take a giant step closer to establishing a high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay neuter clinic for ALL cats. OCC placed third in the number of unique donors (187), which earned an additional award of $1,000.

In addition to those who donated, matched donations (Bark n Purr and an anonymous donor) and others who spread the word you are CAT HEROS.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are celebrating at OCC and hope you are too!!!

OCC work towards creating this life-saving clinic is not hindering our current work of spaying, neutering, vaccinating, feeding, and providing medical care for homeless outside cats at no charge.

Until the clinic is a reality, we rely on local veterinary clinics, like the SNIP clinic, to provide these services. Last year, OCC sponsored one clinic day per month at the SNIP clinic, helping 35 cats per month.

At the beginning of the 2023 season, that number doubled to two clinic days per month, helping 70 cats per month. Starting in June, we will increase to three clinic days per month, which will allow us to help 105 cats per month.

In addition, we now have an arrangement with the Idaho Humane Society (IHS) SPOT clinic that allows caregivers to bring feral cats directly to the IHS clinic and OCC will cover the cost of the spay/neuter surgeries. This must be done by advance appointments only through our Vice President, Lou Ann, at (208) 477-1550..

Your gifts by mail, PayPal and Venmo make all these things possible.

  • Feed Them
