OPERATION CATNIP OF RICHMOND INC A VIRGINIA CORPORATION
February 28, 2011

Operation Catnip is an exceptional organization for many reasons. I have volunteered with them since 2003. They provide an exceptional service to the community by the no-cost spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations that they provide. I can personally attest to the fact that the wonderful people that volunteer with Operation Catnip always go the extra step in ensuring that these cats are very well cared for while in their hands for the short time that they are there. Cats are not only spayed or neutered and vaccinated, but they also are given a flea repellent and each one is given a thorough exam and any apparent wounds are then cleaned and/or treated accordingly.

They are exceptional for the services that they provide for these deserving animals that have otherwise been discarded by the rest of society. This organization gives these deserving fellow creatures the respect and opportunity to live out their lives as healthily as possible. Thanks should also be given to the caretakers that feed and shelter them on a regular basis. Although they may technically not be considered volunteers, Operation Catnip would not be able to do it's job without them. While volunteers tend to them when they come to the clinic, it's the caretakers who volunteer their time on a daily basis. Operation Catnip could not have the impact that it does without them.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

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

I would not change a thing. All the volunteers work together exceptionally well, and pull together when needed. They are all there to work towards the goal.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Veterinary Assistant, Volunteer Coordinator, etc. Whatever needed to be done.
