The of actions on the local level by volunteers such as Ottaway are invaluable in preventing this kind of companion animal overpopula- tion. Currently the City of Perkins shelter only houses dogs. But Ott- away is hoping to someday have a modest building to confine cats following their surgery. Oltaway also works to adopt cats into good homes. To help with her effort, please gather your recyclable aluminum, which includes pop cans, cat food cans, and other aluminum items, and contact your favorite sixth grader. Donations of cat food or cash are also welcome. Wrestlers offer clean up help As a way to thank those who supported them during the season, the Perkins-Tryon wrestling team members will be available to help residents prepare for the town-wide cleanup day. The wrestlers will help resi- dents get large items to the curb. For assistance, contact Jai Oyler at 880-1712 to schedule a time after school on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday before cleanup Saturday, which is scheduled for April 17. In return, residents are asked to give a new unwrapped toy or a Wal-Mart gift card so that they may be used as gifts to underprivileged children at Christmas. ~!~ 121 N. Main RO.
