New Year’s Resolution

Whether your pet is “purebred” or mixed, there are no reasons – except expense – not to alter your dog and cat. There are millions of healthy dogs and cats, puppies and kittens killed every year in shelters across the country for the very simple reason that there are more born than there are homes for.

Please, don’t put it off any longer. If you can’t afford it, most larger metropolitan cities have low to no cost spay neuter programs. Call your local animal control or humane society for information. If your area does not offer low cost altering, go to http://www.spayusa.org/ and click on “Locate a clinic”. Also try http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_care/where_to_have_your_pet_spayed_or_neutered.html and/or http://www.felinefido.com/low-cost-spay-neuter.html.

If none of those resources are able to help you, PLEASE save a few dollars every month until you can afford to have it done. Your pet will be healthier and live a longer and happier life if he or she is altered.

Please, be a responsible pet owner – Do not breed.

Spay or Neuter your dog or cat – because you love him.

    Or your bunny! Bunnies are often dumped outside to fend for themselves when their behavior makes it difficult to be roommates with them. Much dumping occurs a few months after Easter, when many bunnies (and chicks) are purchased as holiday gifts (Grrrrrr!!!). Bunnies make great pets, are very social, funny, smart and clean, yet the shelteres and rescues are loaded with bunnies sadly sitting in small cages awaiting adoption or the gas chamber.

    Listen to Branmuffin and neuter/spay your pet!!

    Thank you karmak. I’ve always believed that if people really knew how many lives they saved by altering their pets, there were be no question about getting it down. Maybe that’s wishful thinking on my part though.
