"I got into into trapping 10 years ago by helping caretakers of various sites to get their strays fixed. These caretakers usually were old ladies without traps, transportation or money to get the cats trapped and pay for the surgery. When Fixnation was set up in 2007 I was able to expand my efforts by having more traps available and not having to pay for the sterilization. I also started to maintain a small trap depot for them in Pasadena thus shortening the trip for trappers in my area. Local volunteers now come to my house for the traps and training but still take the trapped cats to Fixnation in Burbank. Many caretakers and trappers share stories with me about their colonies and all express the same relief that there are no more kittens born in their colonies and the fixed cats thrive and are more healthy. Vicious fights between males stop and the females are no longer pursued by males. FixNation has become essential to our community for the good work they are doing in limiting the expansion of feral cats. I find the staff committed and often going beyond the call of duty to help. I feel good being a volunteer for them. Alice B."
