    Q: How did you learn about spay/neuter and its importance? Was there a life event that changed your views?
    A: I have been involved in animal rescue and humane education for over 40 years. I have been in the trenches seeing animals who are abused, neglected and watched strays foraging for food on the road-side. I have sat in a concrete kennel holding a puppy drawing it’s final breath. Spaying and neutering is the best way to end the suffering and to create a better community for animals and people.

    Q: With so many great organizations to support, why should others support spay and neuter?
    A: Spaying and neutering helps prevent litters and will help with the life of our pets.

    Q: What do you wish that other people knew about us?
    A: MSSPAN provides a wonderful resource to pet owners by providing a safe, affordable means to alter companion animals in Mississippi. They are well thought of in the area and are an excellent resource for other organizations who are also working to help end the overpopulation crisis. They have been a great source of information for us as we venture into mobile spay/neuter territory!

    Q: What attracted you to our cause?
    A: I believe that one of the major means to help end pet overpopulation is spaying and neutering. This with good legislation will be a winning situation for our community (people and pets both)

    Q: What attracted you to our cause?
    A: I think it is a very worthy cause. Too many people do not neuter their animals from ignorance or they may not have the means to do so.

    Q: Tell us about a specific animal or animals who have used our services.
    A: Its very hard to single out just one as you have likely helped me with at least 15 or more. Little Mister, Carmel and Beauty have been with me the longest and appreciate every day they have made my life better.

    Q: What do you wish that other people knew about us?
    A: That you make every effort to make spay & neuter affordable for those of us with limited funds. I would also like to see more traffic at your thrift store.

    Q: What attracted you to our cause?
    A: As an older person with limited income and a desire to help dogs I could not help but appreciate being able to spay, neuter, and give Rabies vaccines to to many more than I could have helped using Vets. Until Becca Flores graduated from Miss State Vet school I was also blessed with help from them- both with spay & neuter, and their monthly trips to areas where folks were happier to get dogs.

    Q: How did you learn about spay/neuter and its importance? Was there a life event that changed your views?
    A: I have been fortunate to have had cats as pets to love from an early age. After seeing two tom cats suffer the wounds of male battles, my Daddy taught me about the importance of neuter/ spay.

    Q: With so many great organizations to support, why should others support spay and neuter?
    A: Because it gives so many more cats a chance at a better, safer, healthier life whereas economics might prevent many kind souls that cannot pay the going rate at vets’ offices.

    Q: What is the animal's life like now?
    A: They are happy & healthy living in my big fenced-in back yard. The yard was their choice not mine. I had them inside, but they preferred the great outdoors.

    Q: Do you remember the first time you saw the animal? What was their physical and emotional state like?
    A: Mae Mae & Timmy were rescued from Hwy 80W. Timmy was living in a drainpipe & surviving on stale sandwiches brought to him by the sandwich vendor & Mae Mae had had her sweet little face kicked in by a rotten bully. Dr. Walker in Clinton fixed her chin for me. Both of them, surprisingly, let me pick them up & give them the loving home they never had before.

    Q: What do you wish that other people knew about us?

    Q: What attracted you to our cause?
    A: The affordability of “fixing” as many cats that I have adopted. I am a firm believer in either rescuing & taking them home or in trap, neuter, release. Thanks again for providing such a much needed, valuable service.

    Q: When did you first hear about MS SPAN and/or the Big Fix Clinic?
    A: I honestly can’t remember, but it has probably been over five years ago. Y’all have “fixed” all six of my feral/rescue cats that I now enjoy. Thank you for your good work!

    Q: Is there anything else you would like to share?
    A: I am truly thankful for all that MS SPAN has done for our little town & other communities in MS. I will never be able to thank Elaine Adair enough for making it possible for us to do so much for the animals here in Natchez. She is a blessing to so many!

    Q: How did you learn about spay/neuter and its importance? Was there a life event that changed your views?
    A: We have always gotten our pets fixed. As times have changed & more people are activist to help animals, spay/neuter is being talked about more & people are being educated on why it is so important – not just to save lives, but also for the health of ones pet(s).

    Q: With so many great organizations to support, why should others support spay and neuter?
    A: For those who love animals, this is the key place for people to support as lives are being saved w/ each spay/neuter. It is the ONLY way to make things better for the pet overpopulation problem.

    Q: What is the animal's life like now?
    A: I don’t know what officially happened to those pups in the Shelter front pen I saw that day. But I do know w/ the help of many friends & a caring Community, we slowly began to get pets fixed & have saved a lot of little lives from
    eing born to end up suffering, homeless or in our Shelter w/ hopes of finding a loving home.

    Q: Do you remember the first time you saw the animal? What was their physical and emotional state like?
    A: The time I realized it was time to finally do something in our Community was when I had gone to our Shelter to drop off some aluminum cans – the collected these to turn in for money to help the Shelter. There were some dogs in the “drop off pen” that day – a few adult dogs & some puppies. Some had mange. They were -all pitiful looking. One of the adult dogs had his head inside the dog house. He turned around & looked @ me w/ a broken spirit & then stuck his head back in the house. I called the Shelter to see if there was anything I could do to help them & was told no – that when they have mange like that, they really couldn’t help them. That was the day I moved forward to make a difference.
