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.

Drinks, appetizers, sweet treats, and prizes will be available at the fundraiser. Tickets cost $100 each, and are available at www.thedoodleacademy.com, or at www.nokhs.com/fix-a-feral.

Sponsorship of this adults-only fundraiser, and the prizes being offered, is being provided by:

Doodle Academy

Vortex Alley

The Emporium and Gift Shoppe

Plaza Wine and Spirits

Diamond Nutrition

PetSense

The Perk

Rusty Barrel Supper Club

El Patio Mexican Restrauent

Traci Chance Norwex

Skydance Brewing

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.
