    ance, is when an owner/caretaker hasore pets than they are able to care foroperly. HAWS Spay-Neuter Initiativeogram (SNIP) and Project Guardian bothfer free or low-cost surgeries to communitysidents, effectively decreasing cat over-opulation.

    ey will be placed up for adoption. Untilat time, the shelter needs the communityssistance with donations of cat food, cat lit-r and towels. Residents are also asked toonate money towards medications for treat-g upper respiratory infections and foreworming, and to sponsor spay-neuter sur-eries for these cats all costly items forAWS to sustain. Donations may beopped at the Family Pet Clinic at N73
