Posted by on in news | No Comments

feral cat in king williamThe Cannoli Fund has some good news and some bad news.

The good news is that the Best Friends Animal Society and PetSmart Charities grant that provided FREE spay/neuter services and inoculations for feral cats in 14 San Antonio zip codes, including 78210, which includes Lavaca and a portion of King William, has been extremely successful!

The bad news is that it has been so successful that Year One funds have been depleted in only seven months.

Therefore, the free services have been suspended pending receiving Year Two funding. Funding is scheduled to resume in April 2013, but local Best Friends coordinator Bethany Heins has indicated that there is a request to have Year Two funds begin sooner. The Cannoli Fund will post updates on the status of this grant’s funding.

Meanwhile, The Cannoli Fund will continue to reimburse residents of King William and Lavaca for spay or neuter surgeries for dogs and cats, plus rabies shots, according to our reimbursement rates. The Community Cat Carpool will also remain active for residents trapping community cats in King William and Lavaca.
