In January and February, WCA assisted with 83 cats. 66 were trapped, neutered and returned. Four were treated for illnesses, and 12 were networked into rescue. In March, WCA TNR’d more than 80 cats with 32 of those cats receiving their vetting this week.
Many thanks to the all-volunteer WCA-TNR team:

WCA recently appointed Sarah Chamberlin as its new president. Chamberlin previously served as board secretary. Tammy Roberts will stay on the WCA board serving as vice president. Kelly Reside has been named the WCA board secretary and Sarah Bailey, board treasurer has provided her resignation to WCA; she will remain in the seat until a replacement has been named. Bailey has been a valuable asset and her service has been impeccable. WCA thanks Susan Langston for serving as Interim President for the last several months; she continues her service as the organization’s Trap-Neuter-Return coordinator. All board positions filled begin serving immediately. Any open board positions will be posted soon both on our website and Facebook.
Thank you to donors who made it possible to provide more than $22,000 in TNR vet care for our community’s cats and to Axion for allowing us to utilize their space for events over the last couple of years. Thanks to Kayla Frank and staff at Old Drum Animal Shelter for hosting a food drive to assist in feeding the cats we are servicing. A very special thanks to our partnering vets: Sedalia Spay and Neuter Clinic, Warrensburg Animal Hospital and Oak Hill Veterinary Services.
Tammy Roberts recently developed a new partnership with 121 Farmhouse Market to create a special bakery item to feature in monthly fundraisers throughout 2022. WCA looks forward to our continued partnerships and growing some new ones.
