In 2013, we facilitated the spay/neuter of 806 cats and 175 dogs with the help of grants from the William Gundry Broughton Charitable Private Foundation, Inc., the Doris Day Animal Foundation, Hedley & Co., CPA, the Golub Foundation, the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation, and the generosity of our local supporters! We continue to produce an educational coloring booklet and speak to school groups and youth organizations. In 2013, Joyce Perry and Jean Simmons, our new Board Members and resident wildlife rehabilitators, gave thirteen presentations on their work in wildlife with an emphasis on raptors.

In addition, Guilderhaven, inc. helps place animals from private homes and from shelters and rescue groups. We have also delivered dog/cat food, and many supplies, to pet owners and rescue groups. We are so grateful for the support and continue to strive to educate the public on the importance of humane pet guardianship. It is our belief that the only way to alleviate the problems of overpopulation, which often leads to suffering and abandonment of companion animals, is through these low cost spay/neuter programs.
