Why should this person or animal be a PetPartners Animaltarian of the Year?
I am Ceil Dixon founder of Gypsy Kitties aTrap Neuter Return organization I work tirelessly making lives of free roaming commuity cats and their caretakers better. I am an independent trapper I do not have volunteers and I operate solely on donations. I go out to residents who are having problems with unneutered cats,to assist in trapping, transporting and housing, I try to find funding to offset the costs. More often than not I take in the kittens that are born to the outside cats and house them and prepare them for adoption. I am not a rescue and i do not have a building. Kittens are in my home til adopted. I will often use my own money when Kittens deplete the funds for TNR, which is necessary to prevent the numerous kittens born every day. The cats are not owned by anyone and most can't affored to pay for all the cats in the colony. I work a partime job in childcare, then I put in many late hours in the dark and cold to trap, S/N, feed, clean and seek funding.
If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?
I would be able to provide more TNR. I would be able to test cats for disease provide needed medical care and save more kittens. I could improve their accomodations. I may not need to use so much of my own money. I would truly be grateful, so would the cats.
