Casting for Cats Spays Holds Spay Neuter Clinic for 31 Upper Keys Cats

IMG_1226On Sunday, December 6, 2015, Casting for Cats, held a Spay and Neuter clinic at the Upper Keys Veterinary Hospital, MM 88 in Islamorada.  31 cats from as far away as Marathon to the 18 Mile stretch were, spayed, neutered and immunized, plus some kitties were adopted.  Many thanks to Dr. Bob Foley, along with Dr. Mark Steele, and Vet Techs Ilene Smith, Joy Gilpin, Alex Brinley, Mackenzie Lambert, Carol Chandler, Margie Swartz, Sue Baker Mason along with Casting for Cats board members Poppy Brownlee, Pam Godfrey and Sharon Mahoney Ellenwood for handling all of the cats and the procedures with care and concern.

Casting for Cats is a volunteer group who freely give their time and support for the feral cats of the Upper Keys. We are a 501c3 non-profit charity so all the money raised stays in the Upper Keys for the spay/neuter clinic and caring for feral cats.  Annually Casting for Cats pays thousands of dollars for the care, fostering and adoption of these cats.

These clinics are made possible from the monies raised from various events every year.  Two of the most popular are the Poor Girls Sailfish Tournament, Feb 2-3, 2016 and the Casting For Cats Women’s Backcountry Tournament, October 14-155, 2016.

Casting for Cats is currently raising money with a raffle for 13’6″ Dragonfly Boat works paddle board, valued at, $3000.  This paddle board is customized with a cooler/seat and outfitted for fishing and LED under lighting for night paddling.  Tickets are $25 @ and can per purchased from Casting For Cats, by calling 305-664-2012.  This paddle board will be given away at this upcoming Poor Girls Sailfish Tournament Feb 2-3, 2016.
