Stray Cat Alliance – Texarkana Pays Vet Costs to Adopt Shelter Cats


The Stray Cat Alliance – Texarkana has sponsored the cats housed at the Animal Control & Adoption Center to be fully vetted and offered up for only the city adoption fee of $20.

The S.C.A.T. group recently teamed with Dr. Beth Wheat to neuter all of the adult male cats currently at the shelter, and efforts are in place to continue sponsoring cats at the shelter for veterinarian costs to be spayed or neutered making the cats fully vetted for adoption. This effort makes Stray Cat Alliance Texarkana the largest volunteer group to sponsor cats for adoption from the Texarkana Shelter.

From the Stray Cat Alliance – Texarkana Facebook Page:

At our last monthly meeting on Feb. 11th Stray Cat Alliance Texarkana voted to begin sponsoring cats in the city’s Animal Care & Adoption Center, on a regular basis. When Dr. Beth Wheat of Ark La Tex Spay & Neuter Clinic heard that we planned to start with multiple cats at once, she notified me that she wanted to help. She and her husband, Alton, offered to donate their time & clinic, on a day the clinic was closed and SCAT only had to pay what it cost them & be on hand to help clean, etc. What a huge unexpected blessing, that was!

Today I am proud to report that Jeff Tarpley & myself, along with Alton Wheat and staff member, Christy Harrison, assisted Dr. Wheat in testing, examining & neutering nine (9) cats for the Animal Care & Adoption Center. They were all beautiful cats and will hopefully all get adopted, quickly.

Thank you, Alton & Dr. Beth Wheat and thank you God for providing us the ability to help these Shelter Cats.
