Spring Is Here, but So Is Puppy and Kitten Season!
Friday, 24 March 2017


In every community in every U.S. state, there are animals sitting in shelters waiting for homes. Only about half of those dogs and cats will ever get one. If they’re in a kill shelter then the other half will be euthanized.


Now is the time to make a change. This season thousands of kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs can be saved from euthanizing for room in kill shelters simply by being fixed. We cannot afford to think of spaying and neutering animals as optional; it’s a legal must and for good reason! Around 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States simply because they do not have homes. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.


Low cost to free spaying and neutering is available in every area all over the country. Call your local animal control to get more information. Let’s stop senseless euthanizing of innocent kittens and puppies by starting with spaying or neutering pets.
