Review for Opkit Kitty Sponsorship Program Inc, Chiefland, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been rescuing cats and kittens at my country home for 18 years and I have surrendered many of them that were adoptable to the APL in Elyria Ohio...but I have had cats dumped on my road and neighbors throw them out deciding they don't want a cat anymore and now I have a growing population of kittens and I spend outrageous money on giant bags of cat food and canned food and flea viles and emergency vet bills and kitty litter but there isn't a single person in Lorain county or any organization that can help me trap neuter and return these cats...they want $35 to rent their cage at the APL in Elyria and you can only put one cat per cage and they want $35 to spay and neuter them... I am a divorced woman left with her house and I have a disability income along with a small pension and I simply cannot afford to spay and neuter as many cats as I have at my house now...I have a huge back porch with a roof and I enclosed it and put electric heater out there for warmth and shelter... I cannot adopt out the kittens because they still run from me and I have a mama with her six kittens in a kitty cage so that I can at least adopt out those kittens... I let the mama in and out during feeding times...but I am so sick and tired of nobody being able to help me and all of Lorain county or Oberlin and Elyria wants me to pay... And every time I'm able to surrender a bunch of cats to the APL in Elyria and I think I'm weeding them out a little bit... Here comes more kittens and a couple of the cats kept their kittens in an old garbage dump bar next door so I wasn't able to get them used to people to adopt them out and I have a real dilemma on my hands and I have not been able to find any help... I have contacted the Humane Society in Columbus now and the Lorain county commissioners and the commissioners were supposed to call me back after digging around to try and find me some kind of help and they never called me back... This is ridiculous that everybody cares so much for animals and I'm stuck with this problem because I care for the critters... Do you have any suggestions or advice for me...
