Isolation pens a must to maintain health standards

One of the mandates of the Swan Valley Animal Protection League is to protect, shelter and promote the adoption of homeless animals. In the past, stray kittens and cats were put together into isolation pens. Now, with the risk of upper respiratory infections so common, it’s important to upgrade the protocol to isolating cat and kittens separately. This necessitates purchasing ready-made stainless steel crates that are stable and can be easily cleaned and sterilized. The benefit of this new setup would be a healthier cat population.

The Animal Protection League also promotes responsible pet ownership as well as a reduction in the cat population through spaying or neutering. The Community Foundation of Swan Valley supports the League and is pleased to help with the purchase of these much-need crates.
