A very special thank you to all who joined us for the annual SPAY IT FORWARD Silent Auction/Dinner fundraiser event on Saturday evening in Xenia. What a wonderful event! The food and desserts were delicious (thank you to Mama Disalvo’s catering and Pastries by Jane). There were more than 60+ terrific baskets to bid on—everything from a new Kindle to a Walt Disney get-a-way (and everything in between, Kings Island/Newport Aquarium package, a B&B + Perfect North package, pet-themed packages, amazing framed and canvas artworks, canoe packages, holiday packages, jewelry, custom dresses and so much more!). Thank you to all who came out to support A4A on this evening, and thank you to all who donated items and baskets for the event. We are so grateful!
Last week we also held a “31 PAW-ty”– with 30% of the proceeds being donated to Advocates 4 Animals. A special thank you to Cindy J. of Copy Cat Pet Sitting, Sara O. (Ex. Dir. of 31) and Dori S. (A4A Board Member) for putting on the successful event!
Docton Animal Clinic (Xenia) held a successful fundraiser specifically for a project we are working on together to help feral and stray cats (more than 50!) at the Greene Co. Fairgrounds. This event was publicized in the Xenia Gazette and also was a great success! To learn more about this project or to donate to help with this project, CLICK HERE.

In 2014 alone we have provided assistance for thousands of spay/neuter surgeries of stray, feral and owned cats in need. We donate more than 10,000 lbs of pet (dog and cat) food to Greene Co. residents in temporary need – EVERY MONTH! We help countless feral cat colonies become spayed/neutered and establish colony caretakers and provide ongoing education. And we rescue/rehabilitate and adopt more than 250+ cats (who were once death row shelter cats) every year. Since our start in 2003, we have adopted, spayed/neutered and assisted more than 10,000 pets in need. Your support makes a difference. Every dollar counts. Thank you for your kindness and support!
