Here's how you can help the Spay/Neuter Impact Program, an Antioch-based nonprofit that has been working to reduce the county's feral cat population since 2006.

SNIP will hold additional clinics on April 14, June 23, Aug. 25 and Nov. 3.

Those who want to volunteer at the clinics must be at least 16 years old. Needs range from help setting up tables the day before an event to trucking supplies back to SNIP's storage unit on Bethel Island afterward. The group also could use extra hands to wash dirty towels and garage space for storing traps.

In addition, SNIP is looking for storage space -- including the use of a trailer -- in the Martinez area, as well as humane traps, specialized pet heating pads, vaccines and gift cards to office supply and home improvement stores.

Monetary donations can be sent to SNIP at P.O. Box 4746, Antioch CA 94531.
