Spay Day 2008 concluded on Friday, 31 October 2008. A total of 157 cats were sent to the various vets for sterilisation – and it was certainly heartening to see so many enthusiastic care-givers bringing the cats in. In the AMK drop-off point where Wiggie was, one care-giver wrapped newspapers around the carrier so that the cat would be less scared enroute to the vet; thought that was really considerate and a pretty innovative idea!
It was also great to have met so many volunteers, whom took much initiative in loading and unloading the cats from the vans. They readily approached the care-givers to fill up the carrier forms and tag the cats very efficiently. Thank you all for taking time off your busy schedules.
I would also like to thank our most wonderful organizing committee – Wiggie, Meng Tuan, Betty, Li Tin, Rebecca, Jeannie, Michelle, Herbin and Sharon. They were the ones working hard behind the scenes to ensure that Spay Day goes on smoothly – from getting vet slots, to charting transport routes, getting logistics and forms done and translated, to getting volunteers and tabulating lists. Special mention goes to Salina and Ivan for helping out by recruiting volunteers and for being always around. Also to Derrick and Emmanuella for designing the cool gift tags for the goodie bags and calling up the care-givers to remind them about Spay Day. Our transport people were also crucial to getting the cats to the venues on time.
In short, there are so many people we would like to thank who made Spay Day 2008 possible. For those not mentioned too, you know we have you in our hearts!
