Help our feral friends... Oper Izzi

Kristen Bishop  PARAGOULD, AR
My name is Kris and I live in a small town in Northeast Arkansas. About 1yr ago one of my inside cats, Izzi, was accidentally let outside one night. Long story short, two weeks later, after canvasing the streets, putting up/handing out flyers,
I found her! Awesome, right? In my 24/7 search for my Izzi, I started noticing the unbelievable numbers of stray and feral cats in just my 4 block neighborhood alone. I had to do something. So now I sneak around parking lots and wooded areas every night in the dark to feed feral cats.

There are others like me (though precious few), and together, we use our own funds to care for these animals that are largely invisible, and often unwanted.
Operation Izzi, Visit here --> www.facebook.com/OperationIzzi is the name of the TNR (Trap Neuter Return) group that is being formed to help these overlooked kitties by providing food/water/shelter,
trapping and taking them to the Vet to be spayed or neutered, get vaccinations and any other medical emergencies that might arise. Our goal is humane population control for the animals, as well as the opportunity for them to live out a good life, instead of early death by starvation, or because they've been taken to a kill-shelter (because feral cats rarely get adopted). It's a community service for a community created issue, and those of us that do it, are impassioned caretakers.
Would you please consider making a donation to this cause? We need your help and more importantly they need your help.

Thank you in advance for ANY amount of money you can donate. It all adds up to help Izzi's feral friends! If not, would you mind sharing this? Thank you!

If you would like to donate to help Izzi's feral friends, every little bit helps and is appreciated. Right now, we're in need of donations for vetting for Lola and Morgan. (also help with Sampson and Spirit's vetting would be appreciated) We would also like to pick up some L-lysine for all of Izzi's feral friends as we're seeing the need for it. Also needing to purchase more traps or if you have one you would like to donate please contact us! If you can help by volunteering, donating food, coolers for shelters inbox us on our page and we'll be in contact. Thanks again for your support friends!

Current Needs:
I will be working an off schedule next week of 10-7 which will allow me to trap and transport of a morning. (with some help, inbox or comment if your available M/T/W for pm transport) I have a few traps purchased, would like to have more on hand if possible. Also food is still a crucial need, we're down to a bag now. If you can help by volunteering, donating food, coolers for shelters, just comment below and I'll be in contact. Monetary donations are always appreciated, although please use the "donate" tab at the top of our timeline as we will be able to use those funds to help with TNR this coming up week. Gofundme mails a check weekly which will not be received until next Saturday, so that will be used for food, shelters, etc. Thanks again for your support friends!

Volunteers Needed!!
We're needing some help to get Izzi's feral friends TNR'd. We are going to be trapping early of a morning, I leave for work @ 7:30 so it would be 4-5 am. Also needing someone to transport once trapped to NEAHS in Jonesboro. (and pick-up of an afternoon) This is the perfect opportunity to help the community cats in Greene County. All this requires is a few hours of your time. We are always in need of food as we go thru a big bag in 4-5 days. If you would like to show your support this way, you can make a monetary donation thru this link or inbox me for my address to drop off food. (We feed Purina Cat Chow) Thank you for helping us help them!
This is Angel. She is one of the many in a managed colony. By spaying her, it will save countless lives . We are their only hope and voice!
