Publishers Note - VFW 3513 Auxiliary has officially adopted this project naming it VFW Alley Cats - Operation Paws. Our purpose is to humanely control the population and condition of the colony that currently exists as Post 3513. Our goal is to connect the spayed/neutered animals with a veteran who will give it a good home. This can be good for the animals as well as the veterans. Donations for this project can be made to VFW Post 3513 or directly to Arizona Spay And Neuter Clinic.

We are hoping that more VFW Posts decide to become active in this endeavor.

Number Eight - Patches Not all of our rescues turn out the way we would like. The vet determined Patches had Stomatitis. She also determined that because of Patches condition she had been affected by this for possibly several years. I noticed Patches the first time yesterday morning. I saw her again yesterday afternoon. She was skin and bones and her fur was matted and in terrible shape. I was able to catch her yesterday evening. We took her to the vet this morning. Under the circumstances the kindest thing was to put her out of her long suffering. We have included two photos of Patches. One is of her mouth. We show it only to show what can happen to these feral cats if they are not looked after. Please help us with trapping and neutering them all. See photos below.

Number Nine - Bella Boo is looking for a home. By this afternoon this pretty kitty will have a better life in store for her. See photos of all at https://www.azbw.com/vfw-cat-rescue/ .

Number Ten - Black Beauty is looking for a home. See photos of all at https://www.azbw.com/vfw-cat-rescue/ .

Like many other individuals, businesses and organizations VFW 3513 Post has feral cats. Being animal lovers, and somewhat realistic about this, Carol and I decided to try help the people at our VFW 3513 Post in Scottsdale, AZ who were trying to help the cats.

A special thanks to Jenny B. Jenny B is the VFW Post 3513 bar manager. She has spent countless hours and lots of her own money on this project.

I went to Arizona Spay And Neuter Clinic to ask for advice where I met with Treva the office manager. She couldn't have been more helpful. First I learned that if we spay and neuter the feral cats and than release them back on our property it will help to keep other feral cats from joining the group. Cats, being territorial, will stay away from another cats location. And, the cats we already have will not multiply due to the spay and neutering that will be done at Arizona Spay And Neuter Clinic.

Treva helped with such things as where and what kind of traps to use. What shots are practical. How long before we can release them after surgery.

Treva even showed us how they have special pricing for situations such as this. Situations where people are simply trying to help a large number of helpless animals.

It's up to people to look after these animals. We domesticated them. We made them dependent on us. We have made it impossible for them to take care of themselves. Anything else is nothing less than intentional cruelty.

Dr. Deanna Gazzerro will handle the surgeries.

Want a kitten? We'll keep you posted on our progress.
