    We just want to wish everyone a happy Christmas and a wonderful new year and take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their support and for making what we do at Coco’s possible. People have helped in so many ways such as: supporting events, selling tickets and calendars, spreading the word about Coco's and the permanent spay and neuter clinic for cats and dogs, driving, trapping, feeding, writing, kitten cuddling, sponsoring, donating, cleaning, designing and cheerleading. We are also very grateful to all the businesses and individuals who have donated prizes for our fundraising events, and for all the donations of food and supplies for the clinic and for the kittens in our care.

    Thanks to all our supporters and volunteers we have been able to spay and
    neuter a total of 4097 cats and dogs since Coco’s began in March 2009.

    3188 of these animals have been spayed/neutered since our permanent clinic
    opened in May 2010.

    We have also rescued 521 kittens and 41 dogs. Some of these are still waiting to be
    adopted.

    Happy holidays from all the animals at Coco’s!

    Default Two little Babies

    These two 4 week old little girls were rescued today in an awful state by Courtney Venus. Had they been left where they were they would not have survived and although weak and full of parasites they have already tested negative for feline aids and leucemia and are now eating by themselves. Thank you Courtney for rescuing these babies and to Roz who rushed straight to Coco's to bath them and get them settled in! They will be up for adoption in about 4 weeks.

    How precious! I know they will look a lot better very soon after recieving tender loving care at Coco's!

    Name Idea: If it's a boy, Zoro could be a good name.....since he/she has a little mask face
