StEPP (STop Euthanasia through Prevention Program)
Rustic Hollow Shelter hosts on site low cost spay/neuter clinics. The clinics are held monthly in summer months and through our participating veterinarians during winter months. Our sanctuary veterinarian comes two to three times a month and gives medical care to our sanctuary cats as well.
The clinics are staffed by volunteers: from the prep team to the surgery team to other volunteers who some just to 'sit under the kitties' keeping them warm after their surgery. We have a wonderful group of volunteers that work long hours on our clinic days. we always are looking for Kitty Kuddlers to help hold the furs after their surgeries.
We have a vision....to create a future where there are: "No More Homeless Pets in Northeast Iowa""
