YOUR SIDE: The Readers Take Over

Kind words for Angels for Animals

To the editor:

I just wanted to say that I was greatly helped by the wonderful spay programs of Angels for Animals. I have had many cats which were stray, that I felt sorry for. I knew they needed spayed and neutered, but I had no way to afford it. I was looking for help and saw a post about fostering kittens for Angels.

I talked to a volunteer named Sameera. She told me about a family, the Kissingers, who raised money at Angels by putting on pancake breakfasts, then sold vouchers to have cats “fixed” for $15 each.

Sherry Kissinger called me and said she had a few vouchers left. Not only did she get me the $15 spay and neuters, she picked up a live trap for me, came to my house, and showed me how to trap the cats.

On Oct. 27, there will be another pancake breakfast. It will be at Angels for Animals, 4750 W. South Range (state Route 165) Canfield, Ohio. It will be a Halloween theme with regular or specialty pancakes, sausage, bacon, pastries, homefries, eggs and more! It will have raffles and a 50/50 drawing. The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for kids. All proceeds are for $15 vouchers for Calcutta and East Liverpool residents. The sponsor is Gem-Young Insurance and Financial Services in East Liverpool.

When I called Angels to thank them for helping me, they said they have had over 1,000 cats and kittens left there in just 10 weeks! Not allowing kittens to be born is the best way to stop them from being abandoned. Angels is a “no birth” shelter and were truly angels to me.
