Cat of the Month - Patty
Patty is a lovely long-haired female black cat who is about 1-2 years old. She was found under a deck in Atascadero with her mother and 2 other kittens, and the property owner could not keep them. She came to the NCHS shelter in September 2014. She is a small, playful cat who enjoys being groomed, sleeping in her favorite basket, and following people around in the shelter if they pause to give her attention.
Patty has been spayed; tested for FIV/FELV; given her shots; and treated for fleas, ear mites and worms.
It is Patty's turn this month to find a forever home. Please come and visit her and see if she might fit into your family. She's beautiful.

Remembering Daphne Fahsing - Our Loss
Daphne Fahsing, one of our beloved co-founders, died December 15 at the age of 90. Daphne was born and raised in England and married American soldier Alfred Fahsing after World War II. They moved to Atascadero, and Daphne resided in San Luis Obispo County for over 70 years. Daphne’s passion and tireless efforts for the welfare of animals led to the co-founding of Action for Animals' Rights with Kate Johns in 1977. They began the first local spay/neuter program in the area, which evolved into the creation of the North County Humane Society in 1993. Daphne's interests extended far beyond working countless hours for animal welfare. She was an accomplished pianist, and her keen intellect and energetic spirit covered a broad range of topics from international affairs to local politics. In accordance with her wishes NCHS is establishing the Daphne Fahsing Spay/Neuter Endowment Fund. A memorial service will be held Sunday, March 1, from 2:00-3:00 pm at the Kiwanis AARP building at 7848 Pismo Avenue, Atascadero.
You were our angel, Daphne. We will miss you.
