August 18, 2018 - DuPage County Animal Services (DCAS) Clear the Shelters day! Feral Fixers will be participating in this event located at 120 N. County Farm Rd in Wheaton from 11am-4pm. This event is part of the national "Clear the Shelters" day. NBC will be covering the event at the DCAS grounds. We will be showing our kittens in their new mobile veterinary van, where some of our kittens have received their surgery. They have 8 medium size cages in the van that can be viewed from both inside and outside the van (there are windows on the outside). We will show our kittens in these cages. There is a canopy outside the van under which we will set up our tables. The premise of "Clear the Shelters" day is to find homes for harder to adopt animals. Adoption fees will be waived on all cats and dogs ages 6 months and older. DCAS has invited a dog and a rabbit rescue to participate as adoption partners in addition to Feral Fixers. Since we do not have any kittens over 6 months or adult cats who will do well at an adoption event, we will feature our younger kittens and there will be no change to our standard adoption fees ($90/kitten or $150/pair). DCAS will also have young kittens available for adoption at these same fees. So no worries about giving kittens away for free. DCAS estimated about 200 attendees based on last year's turn-out. Given that we will be charging standard adoption fees, it is unclear how much foot traffic we will get, but it should be good exposure for us. We will have some basic ground rules for the day and I will appreciate extra volunteers that day to help enforce those ground rules and handle the volume of people (if you want to Volunteer, please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). Our ground rules for this 8/18 event are - No same day adoptions. All adopters who take home kittens that day must be pre-approved. Anyone who meets a kitten at the event that they would like to adopt must submit a completed application and pickup will be scheduled from the foster home if the application is approved. General kitten viewing will be from the outside of the van. Only pre-approved adopters and folks submitting completed applications will be allowed in the van to interact with the kittens.

August 25, 2018 - Pints for Paws! Two Bostons is sponsoring this fundraiser and informational event and have asked Feral Fixers to participate. This fifth annual Pints for Paws will be held at the Crosstown Bar and Grill at 909 E. Ogden Ave in Naperville from 12noon to 2pm. This event is primarily a fund raiser and we will be getting a large donation of high quality cat food for participating. Several other pet rescue groups will also have a table at the event for a 2 hour time slot (the entire event runs from 12noon-4pm). At the event, you will be able to fill your glass with beer specials, enjoy great food from Crosstown Pub & Grill, and socialize with other pet lovers and those passionate about pet adoption! You can also can purchase pint glasses for a $20 donation (before the event) at Two Bostons' stores or online at Two Bostons have asked that we bring a cage of adoptable kittens as well as our board and binder of adoptable cats & kittens. We will likely try to feature 2-3 foster kittens from the Naperville area to minimize travel. We will accept applications for the kittens at the event and all of our other available cats & kittens.
