MONDOVI, Wis. (WEAU) -An area pet shelter reaches a significant milestone Thursday with its low-cost spay/neuter clinics.

February is spay/neuter awareness month, and Thursday the Buffalo County Humane Association in Mondovi is marking 1,000 cats fixed.

In partnership with Purple Cat Mobile Vet, BCHA hosted its first spay/neuter clinic in Oct. 2020 with 40 cats. 16 months later, the milestone of 1,000 was reached.

BCHA volunteers say spay/neuter offers health benefits to cats, including a reduced risk of reproductive cancers. It’s also vital to help control the cat population.

“We love knowing people are getting their cats fixed. The reality of the situation is, It kind of goes two ways. About 70% of cats that are born are actually born to an outside cat and realistically most of those kittens are going to die,” Kristen Gregerson, BCHA Cat Coordinator, said.

The Buffalo County Humane Association made another special announcement on Thursday. A shelter supporter pledged $1,000 in honor of 1,000 cats fixed. She is challenging community members to match her contribution for BCHA’s spay/neuter fund.

If you would like to donate you can give via their Facebook fundraiser, via PayPal from their website, or you can give via check to BCHA; 950 N Eau Claire St, Mondovi WI 54755.
