Cat sterilisation keeps group busy

The group provided subsidised sterilisation for 400 cats before last year’s November 1 deadline using a Department of Local Government grant.

Marie Bedford, who manages the foundation with husband Ken, said they had started another 200 subsidised sterilisations ” thanks to a second grant.

‘I am amazed where the cats are all coming from but they are still coming and it won’t take long to do 200 more,’ she said.

The foundation, set up by late Kallaroo woman Ruby Benjamin in 1985, works with WA vets to sterilise cats and dogs, reducing unwanted animals.

Now based at Girrawheen Community Centre, the group needs volunteers to sell raffle tickets at Westfield Whitford City, Lakeside Joondalup, Morley, Midland and other shopping centres from March 3 to May 24.

‘The raffle is the most important fund raising we have all year,’ Marie said.
