Abandoned cats in Beach Park, IL

$8,150 of $8,500 goal

Raised by 124 people in 31 months
For the second year running, Spay and Stay is raising funds to help abandoned and marginalized cats both feral and non feral in the trailer parks around Beach Park Illinois. 

Last year we captured 90 cats and know of many more across the parks. Some are kittens, others are pregnant mothers.  We are raising funds to cover medical expenses and spay/neuter services from our vet partners in the area. 

Also please consider donating to offset the costs of antibiotics, kitten food and vaccinations.

Non ferals will be put up for adoption at our regular adoption events in the area.

Spay and Stay was started in 2002 by two women who were concerned about the number of stray and feral cats they were seeing and wanted to do something to help. They found funding to start the first TNR group in Lake County, IL, and to date Spay and Stay has sterilized over 5,000 cats in 10 years.

We would be so thankful to receive your kind assistance in providing care for these poor animals that have no home.

Help Spay and Stay Save Shelly -
Update #20

Adopted out this past July, Shelly was picked up by Mundelein police on October 5th weighing only 3.9lbs and with a broken arm! She certainly was out more than a few weeks.

Thankfully her Spay and Stay chip led her back to us so we could provide emergency medical attention. SNS received several quotes and negotiated with a local vet to pin the leg and heal her wounds.

SNS needs to raise an additional one thousand dollars to cover her medical expenses while the organization deals with finding out exactly how this happened. If only all people were truly caring for animals like you and your networks.

With your help we have TNR'd, helped, cured and adopted out so many lives this year. Please help us wrap up this season of work in our local towns that need us most. - The Volunteer Staff at Spay and Stay.

This is our 19th update on our journey together to better the lives of neglected animals in Lake County, Il.

In this update we will focus on a very positive story demonstrating how your support changes small lives. The included before and after photo's are of Queenie.

She was brought to us by a small child in one of the trailer parks in Beach Park on 6/2/17. You can see in the upper left the awful state of her pneumonia and upper respiratory infection resulting in the crusted eyes.

Nursed back to health by volunteer, Mindy and fostered by volunteer, Janet Queenie is a happy and healthy kitten again! Your support makes this possible.

We are almost at our goal for 2017 with less than 600.00 left to raise. Your shares of this initiative have made all the difference. Thank you.

Please help if you can and if you have already supported us please consider again sharing this fund within your social networks. You make this possible. We thank you and Queenie thanks you. - The volunteer staff at Spay and Stay.

Thank you for your continued support as Spay and Stay carries forth our work in the trailer parks for the second year running. In this update I would like to give our supporters real numbers that demonstrate the impact that your donations have made to these marginalized and innocent kittens and cats.
In 2016 the total was 200 trapped! 52 kittens and 125 adults adopted with roughly only 30 feral cats released back to trailer park. Only 30 returned to colonies out of 200 captures!!
These numbers are proof positive of the impact your donations allow our volunteers and vets to make. Thank you again from all of us at Spay and Stay. Learn More about us at www.spayandstay.org and follow us on Facebook

Spay and Stay is releasing another update and unfortunately a call for increased funding help to cover emergency medical expenses. We are again combing the trailer parks of Beach Park, IL and finding critical cases that need attention as we carry out our mission to TNR ferals and adopt out kittens and friendlies.
These 4 poor babies all have threatening eye conditions that need treatment from infection and neglect. Our volunteers and foster are hard at work trapping and saving but we need your help to continue to pay the vet bills associated with these heartbreaking cases.
If you have given, we thank you and ask that you share this update within your networks. Sharing is caring! If you have not yet donated, please take a second to send any amount that you can and know it will save lives and help support the mission of Spay and Stay - to help marginalized cats throughout Lake County Illinois.
Please share, post, tweet and like these updates to maximize our exposure to like minded animal lovers.
