To clarify, she works at All Pet in WP, I'm not sure who owns and operates that particular store, but she is renown as the "cat lady" because she nurses kittens, helps find homes, and is an excellent go-to source for cat/kitten care.
Also, if I recall properly, which is how I got Lux fixed for no cost, we have a local individual who pays the local vet during a specific time so folks who cannot afford to have their pets spayed or neutered to be so.
Grandma knew her husband and used to work for their company, either gave her a call or ran into her, can't recall, and he told her how I had another rescue cat (a Walmart cat no less) and she told him to tell me to take her in and she'd foot the bill.
I am sure there are se free clinics that come to this area, but this is a total local venture if I'm recalling right, xD It could be she is talking about something else, but I'll find out when she does.
Also still working on grams to let me bring the handsome little guy in.
