As most of you know, RCHS has been holding monthly public meetings and has held elections at the monthly meeting in May for a while. Based on recent past attendance and scheduling issues, we are going to be changing over to quarterly public meetings (effective immediately) which will be on the second Monday of each August, November, February, and May, and we will also be moving elections to the February meeting starting next year.
The meetings will still be at the First United Methodist Church Activities Center (530 Poyntz Avenue) and they will still begin at 7 PM.
We will still send reminders/notifications to our members and volunteers listservs for these and encourage everyone to turn out to the public meetings! We will also still be out and about participating in events where you can come and talk to us in person- we typically hold cat adoption events once a month and we also periodically take part in community functions and hold ones of our own sometimes. You can learn more about what we're participating in and generally keep in touch with us via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/RCHSKS) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/RileyCountyHS); you can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The surgery that Betsy needs is a bilateral total ear canal ablation and bulla osteotomy. This procedure essentially removes all the ear structures including the canal but leaves the ear flap unchanged. The round bone behind the ear, called the tympanic bulla (you can feel yours behind your ear), will also be opened and flushed. A normal bulla is hollow and air-filled. Betsy’s are packed with thick pus and bacteria that must be cleaned and rinsed out.
Betsy is a really great dog and we thinks she deserves a chance at life, and a life without pain. We hope you will agree and help us cover the cost of Betsy's surgery. No amount is too small.

During the month of August we're dropping the adoption fee to only $9 for some very special cats. All of these cats would make great companions but for whatever reason have been overlooked. They have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, and have been tested negative for FIV/FELV. Visit this page to find the next member of your family
