Discover the wonder of bats; win an iPad; David & Fuji need homes

DavidCatlink’s spay and neuter clinics for homeless cats are now being done at the Lyle Activity Center located on Hwy 14 on the corner of 3rd and Klickitat streets.

The new mailing address is Catlink, PO Box 523, Lyle, WA 98635. The phone number and e-mail address remain the same: 551 298-8253;

Catlink no longer maintains a shelter.  All cats and kittens are fostered at individual volunteers’ homes.  If you live in the Gorge, please consider becoming a foster home. The need is great for Catlink and Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue, especially now during kitten season.

Pictured is friendly and handsome David. He’s an adult at Catlink who has been looking for a home for quite awhile. He’s has a beautiful all-white, medium-hair-length coat, and golden eyes and a pink nose. He’s up-to-date on his shots and is, of course, neutered. Contact Catlink for more information about David.


Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue is having a fundraising drawing for the latest version of the iPad! A $499 retail value, it has the new Retina display, 5MP iSight camera and video recording.

You need not be present to win. The drawing will take place July 22nd at the White Buffalo Wine Bar & Bistro in Hood River, where CGCR is hosting this year’s fundraising event.

Proceeds will help provide medical care, spay/neuter services, and foster care supplies to more than 700 cats and kittens this year.

Tickets are $10 each or 5 tickets for $40. To get yours, contact me and I will send you a form to fill out and send in along with your check.


Mark your calendar for June 1 for a bat walk  with Karen Hadley, bat steward. The event is called “Bats Demystified,” and will begin at 7 p.m. at the Columbia Gorge Community College Indian Creek Campus, 1730 College Way, Hood River.

Learn about bat biology, habitat needs and their importance to us. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

The event is part of the Indian Creek Stewards Education Series. For more info visit or contact Megan Saunders at 541-386-6063 or


Fuji needs a home. This 10-year-old guy has been through a lot but is ready for a good  home in which to spend his golden years. He lived in an abusive situation for years but despite that is a very nice, calm — and now — happy  dog. Contact Hukari Animal Shelter for more information about Fuji.
