Humane Society holding Fix-A-Feral Fundraiser Thursday Evening
Mike Seals - November 11, 2020 8:21 am
Northern Oklahoma Humane Society is having a Fix-A-Feral Fundraiser Thursday evening, November 12th, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Doodle Academy, 103 East Grand Avenue, across the street from the Poncan Theater.
According to society director, Ashley Villines, and board member Carlisa Archiebeque, this fundraiser is important to provide the means to help reduce the feral cat population in Ponca City. Feral cats are those who are born outside and live there their whole life. Eradication efforts, according to Villines, are not only inhumane, but also very ineffective. The Humane Society has received a grant to further this program, which is primarily community funded, from the Kirkpatrick Foundation and is working closely with the City of Ponca City.
Sponsorship of this adults-only fundraiser, and the prizes being offered, is being provided by:
The Emporium and Gift Shoppe
Plaza Wine and Spirits
Rusty Barrel Supper Club
El Patio Mexican Restrauent
Traci Chance Norwex
Ashley, who joins Beverly Cantrell on KLOR and Sean Anderson on KPNC every Wednesday morning, related that there is never a dull moment at the Northern Oklahoma Humane Society.
She said that last Wednesday after she left the studios, the Humane Society was given 8 Guinea Pigs. Luckily, she said, she has already rehomed the Guinea Pigs.
