Pet Savers invaluable in helping save kitties

I would like to give a shout out to the Pet Savers organization and the compassionate families who have now adopted the four cats that we discovered abandoned and living outside of a house in a foreclosure situation last week.

The cats were starving and had no one to feed or care for them. They were frightened and cold and one was in heat. We didn’t know what to do. We were able to grab one, but the others were too skittish to let us pick them up. 

We couldn’t let them suffer and die, or continue to breed.  We called Pet Savers and they loaned us traps and taught us how to set up the traps to humanely catch the kittens. Through a partnership Pet Savers has with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Pet Savers was able to spay/neuter/microchip and vaccinate these kitties all for a reasonable cost. 

We luckily found homes for all four, but none of this would have been possible without Pet Savers.  Pet Savers is a wonderful organization doing exactly what is so desperately needed to help stop the pet overpopulation problem, and they need our support to continue the mission.   To learn more about Pet Savers, visit www.petsavers-

Firefighters made neighbors feel safe

I would like to thank the fantastic group of firefighters who came to our rescue Feb. 25 at Mission Meadows community. They certainly saved our houses.

They were quick responders, well trained, well coordinated in their various duties and compassionate. They were there with blankets for our wheelchair-bound neighbor and gave everyone a sense of security.

These servants to our community are truly our American heroes.
