To the editor:
The Polish American Veterans and auxiliary would like to thank all of our supporters and local businesses that participated in our annual Christmas food drive.
This year's donations yielded six boxes of food and a paper products gift bag to each of the five needy families in our community.
A special thank you to all of the members that helped assemble, pack and deliver the boxes.
We even had Santa Claus help with our deliveries.
Thank you all again.
Guardian Angels to the rescue
To the editor:
I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank the Feline Guardian Angels for their help with a situation that had developed in the area where I live.
A colony of 26 cats and kittens were living in a nearby residence that no longer housed anyone. It appeared that most of the cats were feral, but some may have been abandoned and wandered there, or were lost strays.
Other than food and water, I was not able to do much for these animals, that were increasing in number.
I called several groups and the group that was able to help was the Feline Guardian Angels from the Montgomery County area. They are a trap, spay or neuter and return group.
All 26 cats and kittens were spayed or neutered and given the required shots and tests necessary to return to their home.
Several of the cats were adopted and some were able to be placed in foster care. A situation where a population of feral cats kept increasing has been stopped.
Often, the volunteers would have to patiently wait and watch to trap, and then transport the cats to a veterinarian and then keep the cats until they could be returned to their "home."
Ideally, it would have been wonderful if all the cats could have been adopted, but at least the cycle has been stopped.
Again, thank you Feline Guardian Angels.
