Fall TNR Fundraiser
Can you help us ?
We have a goal to Trap, Neuter and Vaccinate and return 20 feral cats between now and the end of November. We plan to take 10 in Oct and another 10 in Nov to help prevent the mass of Spring babies next year and also help prevent winter illnesses.
Each appointment costs us 50$ per cat. This is a reasonable price considering the end result. But it is an imposing task to do alone.
We would appreciate any donations to help us with this cost and / or any volunteers to help with locating, trapping and possibly transporting the cats.
The rewards are less feral cats next year, the satisfaction that you helped your community with an ongoing problem and the biggest satisfaction of knowing that you made the lives of the cats in your neighborhood better. Feral cats can then healthfully serve their purpose catching mice, moles and snakes that you may not want around your area.
Who We Are
Experienced and Supportive
In Fremont County and Southwest Iowa Faith in Action's projects are developed to support a community where all residents may live independently with dignity.
Registered as a 501c3 charitable organization, in 2005 Faith in Action offered transportation services and expanded a health equipment loan program.
Both the Taxi Service and H.E.L.P. (Health Equipment Loan Program) continue to grow, and over the years volunteers and residents county-wide have initiated other projects. Our TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return Program) is appreciated and we plan to keep going as funds allow. Some of our staff and volunteers work with others on housing and local food production as the opportunities arise.
Our Advisors represent Southwest Iowa social service agencies, county and town boards, medical service providers, the schools and the court system .
Faith in Action is funded with small grants, reasonable fees for the TNR and medical equipment services, and with tax deductible donations to the local 501c3 charitable organization.
We provide Non-Emergency Medical Transportation for Medicaid members and the public in Southwest Iowa. Certifications for our six Taxi Vans and drivers are thorough and renewed annually.
Our Taxi Service is self-supporting with a Medicaid contract and subsidies from SWITA, the regional Transit Authority.
Anyone can call our dispatcher or stop in the office to schedule non_Medicaid rides. Essential Shopping or business trips can be arranged. We're glad to take individuals or small groups on outings or to special events.
Just call to work out the details!
Trap / Neuter / Return Program
One of several projects of community concern, assistance with spay/neuter and vaccination of free-roaming cats remains a need. We trap and transport "community cats" to several low-cost S/N clinics in our area.
Health Equipment Loan Program
We maintain a varied inventory of durable medical equipment. Keeping the best of donated items, we purchase new models of mobility and bathing/toileting aides. Available for short-term loan or to purchase, this equipment allows patients to recuperate at home, or to make life a bit easier for caregivers and their loved ones.
