Paws of Hope a Huge Success
This month on Feb. 23 2016 Coalinga Paws of Hope sent 13 dogs and 15 cats to be spayed/ neutered by the HOPE foundation. The animals where returned to the owners the following day. According to Luis Henry Gonzales, “Paws of Hope has already spayed/ neutered 78 animals and expects another 25-30 animals to be sent off in March as well”. Luis Gonzalez of the City Planning Commission and Tanya Stolz of the American Cancer Society in collaboration with the Coalinga Woman’s Club created a pathway to success for Coalinga Residents to be able to get low cost spay /neuter services.
Luis Gonzales said “we want to thank all those that helped make this another successful transport. Thank you so much DArtenay-McDaniel Paula Armorica Trumbly. We also want to thank Coalinga Animal Control Officer Naomi Castillo & Code Enforcement Officer Joey Ramsey for giving a quick hand on drop off day. I always say, it takes a community to make great things happen. Don’t forget spay-neuter- adopt-love.”
The opportunities created by the Paws of Hope will allow Coalinga to finally tackle the pet overpopulation problem that many have brought up at numerous City Council Meetings.
When I asked Tanya Stolz what she would like to say about the huge success regarding Paws of Hope, she said- “it’s spring time which means it’s mating season, let us help you get your babies fixed, and getting the community on board will help the amount of stays and overpopulation of animals in Coalinga, Huron and Avenal”.
