Totally Adoptable, Totally Adorable…
Welcome to this week’s FresYes Adoptable Pet of the Week where we share a pet from a local Pet Adoption Agency.
This week we have two very important things to share in this post. The first is obviously our FresYes Totally Adoptable Pet of the Week, but the second is for all of you who have a un-neutered male cat. We’re sharing a One Day Event to Neuter & Vaccinate 200 Cats in FRESNO that happens this Wednesday! Please like, share and push this out to all your friends – let’s make this event a success!
Meet Screech, an interesting medium-sized canine whose charm is beyond words! Just 1 1/2 years old, Screech is the epitome of resilience. The life he left behind was indeed challenging, but is that not what makes life worth living?
So, are you ready to let Screech into his new home and heart? Screech entered the shelter with a defensive demeanor. It took him some time to warm up to other dogs. In fact, he has even made some pint-sized buddies. Screech shows no signs of problematic behavior. He loves spending quality time with his human friends and adores belly scratches. Want to take Screech out for a walk? No worries. Screech is trained to walk beautifully on a leash. For those concerned about crate or potty training, good news – Screech ticks both boxes.
This furry friend is more than ready to trade in his past for a life full of warmth, safety, and love. Adopting Screech means bringing home a friend who values every moment spent with his loved ones. Let Screech transition into a caring home, assisting him to step out of his shell, embracing the joy of a wonderful life.

One Day Event to Neuter & Vaccinate 200 Cats in FRESNO
This is from a Press Release that we were just sent. If you have a male cat that is not neutered we strongly encourage you to look into this.
FRESNO, CALIFORNIA – September 12, 2023 – Fresno TNR and Kirkland Foundation announced today that they have partnered with Dogwood Animal Rescue and Cat House on the Kings to host a record event to neuter and vaccinate 200 area cats.
On Wednesday, September 13, 2023, Fresno TNR and Kirkland Foundation will offer a one-day neuter and vaccination event for at least 200 male cats. Every male cat will be neutered and vaccinated for rabies and other life-threatening diseases. Veterinary procedures will be provided by Palm Bluff Veterinary Hospital. Additional vaccines will be provided by Cat House on the Kings through a generous grant from Petco Love. Cost to pet owners will be $30 per cat with the balance of the cost supported by Kirkland Foundation and Dogwood Animal Rescue. Appointments for this event can be scheduled through Fresno TNR’s Facebook page.
WHAT: Neuter and Vaccination Event Hosted by Kirkland Foundation, Fresno TNR, Dogwood Animal Rescue and Cat House on the Kings
WHEN: Drop offs today (Tuesday, Sept 12); Procedures (Wednesday, Sept 13)
LOCATION: 7425 N. Palm Bluff, Fresno, CA 93711
APPOINTMENTS: Visit Fresno TNR’s Facebook group for details and appointments
Brandi Sherman, founder of Fresno TNR, added, “Every day Fresno TNR receives dozens of requests from Central Valley residents for help fixing stray cats. When our first neutering event received three times as many inquiries as available appointments, Kirkland Foundation immediately arranged for the balance to be neutered and vaccinated. This event is another example of nonprofits working together to address a public health issue. We’re hopeful that events like this will inspire local cities and counties to provide the much-needed funding and resources to solve this area health crisis.”
Kyle Kirkland, founder of Kirkland Foundation, stated, “California’s Central Valley has a serious animal overpopulation problem with thousands of homeless dogs and cats at risk of abuse, injury and disease, stray colonies in local neighborhoods and parks and overcrowded conditions in area animal shelters. While cities and counties research responses to this social health crisis, non-profits like Kirkland Foundation, Fresno TNR and Cat House on the Kings have provided TNR and rescue options for Central Valley residents. We encourage city and county leaders to increase support for efforts like this to address area over-population.”
