Since December of 2005, the Humane Society has spent over $175,000 helping citizens of Anderson County get their dogs and cats spayed and neutered. Why? Simple…we love animals and don’t want to see them euthanized due to overpopulation!
Statistics show that around six million animals enter shelters each year in the United States. Only half of them make it out alive. The other half are euthanized because there aren’t enough homes for them all. We intend to change the future of overpopulation and euthanasia in Anderson County by decreasing the number of unwanted puppies and kittens born in our community. How? Spay and Neuter!
What difference will this make?
Studies show that the average number of kittens in a litter is four to six. Studies also show that the average number of puppies in a litter is six to ten. Based upon this statistic, we have already stopped at over 11,000 unwanted animals from being born. That’s 11,000 animals that won’t be euthanized for lack of a loving home!!!
What can you do to help prevent unnecessary euthanasia?
Make a contribution to the spay/neuter program. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. What better way to save a life…or ten…or twenty?
This worthy program is in jeopardy of being put on hold due to recent lack of funding. Every animal that we can’t get fixed NOW could result in four to ten babies being born in the next year. And that’s not counting any babies that those babies might have later. And babies that those babies might have. And well…you get the point.
Spaying and neutering saves lives and decreases the number of unwanted animals entering our local animal shelter. Please consider making a donation today to help us keep this program going strong, to help the pets and people of Anderson County.
