Zimmer Foundation is now the Zimmer Feline Foundation

Just in case you haven't noticed -- over the past few months we've been using a slightly different name for our foundation -- Zimmer Feline Foundation.  It's a subtle change but one that more depicts who we are and what we do.  And -- it also is the last step in transitioning from a Michigan corporation (where we worked with cats from 2000-2009 to a New Mexico corporation where we've been working with cats since 2010.  To read more:…

Cat Spay of Santa Fe Comes of Age

July was a benchmark month for Cat Spay of Santa Fe.  Through the end of last month, we’ve helped 570 caregivers fix – and keep -- over a thousand cats.    And we’ve done this through the participation of ten private and nonprofit clinics based throughout northern New Mexico.  We’re especially pleased with these numbers as in our earlier Michigan program (2000-2010), we had only fixed a total of 560 cats for 115 caregivers after completing our first full year of operation.    With another 4…

Kittens as young as 16 weeks old can get pregnant -- and so it's important to spay (females) and neuter (males) before they turn 4 months old.

Cat Spay of Santa Fe Update

Since our first burst of activity in late April, Cat Spay of Santa Fe went dormant. We kind of expected that to happen as it takes time for a new program to build a rhythm. And – since it is a new program – that’s okay -- because it gives us some time to work out any kinks without making too many public mis-steps. (We used our earlier Ann Arbor spay/neuter programs as a model but there are differences between Ann Arbor and Santa Fe that'll cause… Continue
