It costs $35 to spay/neuter, vaccinate and ear tip one community cat. We have four extremely generous supporters who will match every $35 donated up to $5,250. That means we can raise $10,500 to spay/neuter 300 community cats! We only need 55 more gift to achieve our goal!

BCAA foster parents pulled 10 kittens that day and one of them was a cute tuxedo kitty. Due to his crazy antics in his foster home, he was appropriately named Tony Stark.
