An event held at Sporty’s Bar & Grill last Thursday evening was the cat’s meow.
The event was the annual Cat’s Meow Society burger and beer night fund-raiser.
The Cat’s Meow Society was founded in 1999 and is a not-for-profit society that tries to raise awareness to the North Island community about the necessity to spay and neuter family pets.
One unsprayed female cat and her offspring can be responsible for the birth of 73,000 kittens in six years.
The society helps with funding for spaying and neutering, helps finds homes for cats and kittens, and provides support for people who can no longer keep their cat.
People who missed the fund-raiser can still help. Bottles and cans can be donated at the Return It Centre; cat food, money, and kitty litter can be donated to the society directly; or people may opt to foster a cat or kitten for a short period of time.
