KAR was busy over the weekend once again! We assisted with a spay/neuter weekend spearheaded by Dr Megan Edwards from Barriefield Animal Hospital to help to stabilize a feral cat colony on Amherst Island.
Thanks to Dr. Edwards, who organized the initiative, including securing donated vaccines and other medication and fundraising to cover the cost, 12 adults and four kittens were trapped by Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative and Dr. Edwards.
Unfortunately, the kittens are sick with upper respiratory infections and one is touch and go as he has a severely infected leg. The kittens will come into our care to be socialized and eventually adopted. The adults will be returned to their home on the island. In total, we have taken in 11 cats and kittens from this colony.
