The Fairchild Foundation is a much needed and appreciated trap-neuter-return organization that provides spay/neuter of feral cats in the Berks County area. I have volunteered with Fairchild for the past year helping to prep the cats before surgery. This is such a rewarding task for me. Dr. Fry takes the time to share her expertise with all volunteers, makes them feel welcome and has a genuine devotion to the feral cat community. If it were not for this organization, there would be many more unwanted litters born and more territorial fighting among colonies, as well as unhappy neighbors.
Fairchild also provides education to cat caregivers by instructing them how to use the humane box traps, what needs to be done to successfully trap the cat and how they need to care for it before it is released back to its colony. Many caregivers would not be able to be responsible for spay/neuter if it were not for Fairchild Foundation.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The number of cats that have been sterilized since this organization began and less litters being born.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have their own space for spay/neuter surgeries so that more cats could be sterilized and clinics could be held more than once a month.

I work with a vet who volunteers her time with the Fairchild Foundation & we have told people about their great program when they called our animal hospital looking for help with stray cats in their area. They are a wonderful, helpful group of volunteers!!!

The Fairchild Foundation helped me to catch a colony in its early stages and avoid it getting out of hand. Their dedication to the cause of Trap, Neuter, Release is clear in everything they do, from the clinics themselves to their efforts to educate the public. Dr. Fry has proven to be a compassionate person and a skilled professional. This is an organization which is deserving of support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Fairchild Foundation helped me to spay/neuter 9 cats, and to get them started with Leukemia testing and vaccinations.

The organization is badly in need of their own facility for their clinics, which would allow them to serve a larger number of the stray/feral cat population in a humane fashion. This is an issue Dr. Fry is campaigning for already.

To Whom It May Concern,

Dr. Fry and her team are awesome and doing something that is really needed. Dr. Fry was our vet at one time and we love her so much!!! I feel trap, neuter, vaccinate and release is a wonderful program that helps the over populating of cats. They also get the
vaccines that they need. Not only does it keep the cats from over populating, it also helps the cats from fighting and spraying!!! This program should continue for it helps not only the cats, but us humans as well!!!

Thank you!!!

The Great!

Hello!! I have been volunteering with Fairchild for several years now. I am one of the veterinarians assisting with surgery, vaccinations, and viral testing of the cats.
I have seen the gratitude on caregivers faces when they pick up the cats at the end of the day. Thanks to them, at least
some of the ferals have better care in our county.

The Great!

Fairchild Foundation practices Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), which is a much needed service here in Berks County, PA. Fairchild has helped dozens of families and hundreds of cats since 2002. They are a small group of dedicated volunteers that love cats and are advocates for them. Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats and improves their relationships with the humans who live near them!! TNR is the HUMANE solution to the cat overpopulation problem.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By spaying and neutering the stray/feral cats, Fairchild has drastically reduced the number of kittens being born each year here in Berks County and the surrounding areas.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

taking care and helping the cats!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, caring, giving, warm-hearted, welcoming, willing to help in any way possible....I can't say enough of good words about them!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a sanctuary for unwanted feral cats and spay/neuter A LOT more cats!

Ways to make it better...

we could help more cats!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

there are more cats that need help than the organization can handle.

One thing I'd also say is that...

TNR works!
