In 2020 3,677 cats were spayed or neutered at the Community Cat Complex. That is definitely something to celebrate. We moved into the Community Cat Complex in February and did no spay or neuters in January 2020. Then a global pandemic caused shut downs, staff furloughs and an abbreviated surgery schedule. Through all of the challenges and growing pains Alley Cat Advocates continues to make a difference every day.

Fancy Nancey’s caretakers reported that his tail just hung behind him like he couldn’t move or raise it. At first, it was difficult to find any injuries, but an x-ray revealed a fracture in his spine. The fracture is above the tail, but by amputating most of his tail, the pressure and weight have been removed and the fracture can heal. Fancy Nancey is now able to move his nub and seems to be pain free. Donations are needed to provide extra care like x-rays and additional surgery and hospital care. Please donate to provide help for Nancey and cats like him.
