"I would like to thank the Fox Valley Humane Association for their TNR program. My husband and I live on a farm and every year we have kittens born out in the barn. We not only had inbreeding, but mom cats that would just walk away from their babies and then I would have to raise them. There was a lot of sickness in the barn, even though we feed them twice a day. Since we started bringing the cats in to to FVHA, we have very healthy (fat) cats, and this should be my first year without kittens being born in the barn. Thank you again. This program is a wonderful benefit for farmers who could never afford to fix a barn full of cats."
