Meet JESSICA BOWMAN
JESSICA SAW A NEED IN HER TOWN AND SURROUNDING AREAS - SO MANY UNFIXED COMMUNITY CATS.
SHE STARTED TNR IN 2017 AND FORMED A 501(C)3 IN 2018. SHE HAS SPAY/NEUTERED 120 CATS IN A TOWN WITH A POPULATION OF 700. THE COMMUNITY IS FINALLY RECOGNIZING THE RESULTS OF TNR.
SHE RAISES MONEY BY SELLING HOMEMADE CAT AND DOG TOYS, BAKE SALES, RAFFLES, AND ALL SORTS OF OTHER STUFF. SHE IS NOW COLLECTING ALUMINUM CANS BECAUSE THEY RECENTLY LOST THEIR VOUCHER PROGRAM FOR SPAY/NEUTER. HER MOM IS HER ONLY VOLUNTEER.
THANK GOODNESS MOM BAKES THE BEST PIES AND THE WHOLE TOWN IS NOW ADDICTED TO THEM!
THANK YOU JESSICA (AND MOM) FOR ALL YOU DO AND CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING OUR LATEST COMPASSION HEROES!
AdvoCATS Hawaii is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, committed to humanely controlling the homeless cat population through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR).
Since starting in March 1999, they have spayed or neutered over 22,000 homeless cats through monthly spay.neuter clinics!
Our programs include:
• Spay/neuter program: Volunteers trap homeless cats and bring them to our spay/neuter clinics where the cats are sterilized by a licensed veterinarian. The cats are also provided with identification and additional health care.
• Maintenance program: Volunteers feed and water the cats daily and monitor the colony for health problems and for new cats and kittens in the colony.
• Foster program: Volunteers foster young feral kittens, providing food, medical care, and socialization, until the kittens are old enough to be spayed or neutered and adopted into a forever home.
