Weather Played Part in Numbers Down for February 2014

Although during February 2013, P.U.P.S. had fourteen neuter/spay surgeries, so we are down only by two surgeries from this time last year for the month of February.

P.U.P.S. is hoping for a grant soon so we can continue our free-roaming cat program consistently throughout the year.

Momentum will pick up beginning with Spring season.
