Breakfast for Dinner

July 9, 5-8 pm: Breakfast for Dinner (Fundraiser for ADLA and the Spay Neuter Hotline) at Scramble, 6590 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale  

Let's Hear it for First Time Trappers!

The Spay Neuter Hotline's Sunday TNR clinic was amazing once again.  87 cats were brought to the clinic. So many people pitch in to get the cats there, it's hard to single out one group.  However, I was struck by the wonderful first time trappers. Four first time trappers brought 19 cats- including a mother and son, husband and wife, strong solo trapper and neighbors.  By the way the neighbors topped the success rate with nine cats.  Thanks to all!
