I foster cats and dogs with an animal rescue and Dr. Fry has helped us so much with our rescue vetting needs. She also volunteers her time with The Fairchild Foundation to do TNR. I have volunteered at the clinic, brought feral cats myself as well, and what they are doing there is wonderful. Fairchild is passionate about helping to control the cat population that is so out of hand in this country. What they do is a very much needed service in the area for people in the community that need a place to reach out to for help. I have seen first hand as well when someone comes in that needs to help a cat, but financially cannot even afford the small donation fee......Dr. Fry helps anyway because someone cared enough to bring that cat for TNR even though they have no money...they have a heart and that counts for something. So, to be awarded this $5,000 will help Fairchild immensely in their mission to continue to help the cats in Berks County and beyond.

The Great!

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

Volunteering at the clinics.

Ways to make it better...

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

have it be a clinic that had funds to function 5 days a week, as it is SOOOO needed in our area.

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.

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.

The Great!

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.

More feedback...

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!
