Special to The Bedford Citizen
The Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society Catmobile is coming to Bedford on Saturday, May 7th; it will park along Mudge Way near the Police Station. If you have a cat that needs to be spayed/neutered or know someone who does, please let them know about the Catmobile’s Bedford visit. Check https://mrfrs.org/catmobile/ to learn more and register for a date.
The mobile clinic is visiting Bedford at the request of Girl Scouts Joleen Ricci, Maddie Anderson-LaPorte, and Calista Barber. The young women, members of Bedford Troop 71639 are working on their Girl Scout Silver Award Project, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. Silver Award projects give Girl Scouts the chance to show that they are leaders who are organized, determined, and dedicated to improving their community.
For their project, Bedford’s scouts are bringing the Catmobile to Bedford and collecting supplies for the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society.
- The Catmobile is a subsidized mobile spay and neuter clinic for cats that comes to various towns. Cats are overpopulating in some areas. It is important for pet owners to spay/neuter their cats and there are feral populations that can be controlled with trap, spay/neuter and release programs.
- The girls are collecting supplies for the Catmobile and the MRFRS adoption and foster programs. If you are interested in donating supplies, you can go to their website to see what they need at https://mrfrs.org/wish-list/ . There will be a donation box at Mudge Way on May 7th so you can bring your donations (please bring donations between 9am and 3pm).
The future Silver Award Scouts send their thanks and they hope to see you on May 7.
