A group of avid animal rescuers from Cat Snap have been on a crusade to reduce feral overpopulation and to improve the welfare of animals in the greater Champaign County Illinois area. They are on a mission to advocate the importance of spaying/neutering in order to reduce the number of cats and dogs born into situations of inadequate care and abuse and limit the numbers of unwanted animals relinquished to shelters.
Phil the cat has made an incredible transformation since he was rescued from a car accident. “He was hit by a car 6 weeks ago and ended up at the U of I vet school emergency room. He had surgery to fix the jaw fracture, plus remove some broken teeth. He was also neutered and went into foster care,” said Susan Norris, president of Cat Snap. “His front leg was splinted while it healed. He is a shy but amazingly sweet boy.”

Royal Canin recently gave us an opportunity to donate 100 bags of Royal Canin’s new Spayed/Neutered cat food. We are happy to choose Cat Snap and their spay/neuter and adoption program to be the recipient for the $2,500 food donation.

Kim wrote: “When my husband and I first adopted Ginny, it was clear she was once a hoarder’s cat; she couldn’t be held, didn’t even know how to play with a toy, and had chronic eye discharge, most likely from Feline Herpes. Now, a year later, she absolutely loves to cuddle, loves to play even more!, and a daily lysine supplement has made her eyes much better. She is such an amazing cat; she will actually sit and yell at us to play with her, and is the only cat I’ve ever met that will consistently fetch her toy and bring it back you! thank you, Catsnap, for bringing her in to our lives, I couldn’t imagine life without her.”
