The “no-kill” plan is spreading in shelters all over the Mainland and in much of the world; New Zealand plans to become the first “no kill” nation. As numerous examples yield positive results, the movement is slowing catching on here. Free and low-cost spay/neuter clinics are successfully progressing to prevent the root cause of the issue, slowing the domestic animal population growth.
9th Life Hawai‘i, Maui’s largest no-kill cat sanctuary, is once again having an eight-day mass spay-neuter clinic beginning Sept. 14. The suggested donation is $35, but services are free for hardship cases.
A 9th Life Hawai‘i volunteer will transport your cats (pets, ferals, strays or colony cats) from your area to the clinic for surgery and return them the same day.
See www.9thlifehawaii.org or call 573-3365 to reserve an appointment and secure required surgery forms. While providing shelter for nearly 300 cats with safety and security at the sanctuary, 9th Life has “fixed” over 3,600 cats. Let’s increase that number as we move to a solution.
