      Comment
  • After conducting our Harvey County Area Summit on Animal Health and Well-being in January of 2013 we began working on numerous components to address the underlying concerns for the overpopulation of unvaccinated and unaltered felines in the city of Newton.
    The Cat Crazy program was conceptualized to be a multi-faceted approach to eliminating this overpopulation of the unvaccinated and unaltered feline population in Newton by bringing awareness to the front of all residents’ minds that live in Harvey County.
    A website; www.CatCrazyCHHS.org;
    To raise awareness of the plight of these unvaccinated, unaltered and often unwanted felines.
    The Cat Crazy, Community Support Donation Program;
    This program allows supporters to have their name proudly displayed in various businesses within the community by simply donating $1 or more.
    Multi-Media Awareness;
    This program provides ongoing support within the media to raise awareness of the plight of these unvaccinated, unaltered and often unwanted felines.
    The Cat Crazy, S.N.Y.F. Voucher;
    Spay, Neuter Your Feline Vouchers, is a targeted approach for individual pet cats in areas of Newton where high intake of stray felines occur at Caring Hands Humane Society on a yearly basis.
    The Cat Crazy , TNR Program;
    Trap, Neuter, Return Program, is a targeted approach for vaccinating and altering free roaming felines which are not identified as being owned by any one person but do have identified caregivers.
    Caring Hands Humane Society would like to thank everyone who donated to our Cat Crazy Donation program at one of the following locations, and a special thank you to the businesses that allowed them to do so. Zorro’s, Newton Animal Hospital, Newton Discount Liquor, All Creatures Veterinary Center, Passion for Pets, Curtis C’s Diner, Bentley Corner Bar & Grill, Mikes Rent to Own and Great Plains Pet Hospital.
