Kitty Christmas 2022

Kitty Christmas Event

December 10, 2022

So, what is Kitty Christmas? Over the next couple of months, people can send boxes or monetary donations to the Lorenz household. On the date of Kitty Christmas, December 10th, it will be one LARGE unboxing. It is like regular box day but times 100! Or more!! It is always a surprise of how many boxes we can get!!

The unboxing fun begins at 10:00 AM, FFRC time!

In the meantime, donations can start flying into the Lorenz household. As donations come in, we will post some pictures of things being bought, which adds to the suspense of how much we can get donated to surprise Megan and FFRC!!

Spay and Neuter Program

FFRC is working in conjunction with HumaneOhio.

We are committed to reduce the overpopulation problem of cats in Defiance and our area counties.

All spays/neuters are performed by qualified, licensed veterinarians. Each cat receives a physical exam and quality, 24-hour, pain medication.

 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Call FFRC at 419-393-2400 to set up an appointment. We will do this transport twice a month. Drop offs/pick ups are both at FFRC. The drop off time is 5:30-6:00 AM.  Pick up time is 5:30 PM.

PRE-OP INSTRUCTIONS: No food after midnight if the animal is 4 months or older. No food after 6 AM if the cat is under 4 months old. They can have water.

Mama cats can be spayed when kittens are 6 weeks old. Kittens can be spayed/neutered when 2 pounds, usually that happens at 8 weeks of age.

Cats must be in a plastic crate (size appropriate) or a humane trap. NO WIRE CAGES OR SOFT SIDED CARRIERS. One cat per crate/trap. WILD CATS MUST COME IN A HUMANE TRAP.

Cats will receive a small green tattoo on their underbelly near the umbilicus to identify that they have been fixed. If the cat is an outdoor cat/stray/wild, the left ear will be tipped (a universal sign that this cat has been neutered/spayed).

PAYMENT IS DUE AT THE TIME OF DROP OFF, BEFORE LOADING ONTO THE TRANSPORT BUS (CASH OR CHECK MADE OUT TO FFRC).

PRICES:

  • Indoor cats/owned, male or female — $60 (includes physical and pain meds)
  • Outdoor cats/stray/feral, male or female — $35 (includes physical, Rabies Vaccine, eartip, and pain meds)
  • No extra cost for pregnant cats, in heat cats, or eartip.
