Help stop pet overpopulation

from The Journal News, 11/9/2012
Our animal shelters are filled with millions of healthy cats and dogs in need of loving, permanent homes. Each day shelters receive more and more animals and the caring shelter personnel, who care for these wonderful animals, kill them to make room for the new arrivals. Pet overpopulation in this country is a grave problem that calls for immediate public attention.
Even those who do not have pets are affected by this crisis because millions of tax dollars are spent annually to care for abandoned and unwanted pets, and millions more to destroy those that find no homes.
There are two main ways to end this vicious cycle. The most important is spaying and neutering all dogs and cats. Spaying and neutering not only helps control overpopulation, but also provides many health benefits.
Low-cost spay/neuter certificates can be purchased through the Animal Welfare League, 914-948-2094, Monday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; Tuesday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Low-cost spaying/neutering is also available at the Simpson Clinic, 914-941-2894 (press 10). You can also borrow humane traps from the Simpson Clinic for a small deposit to catch free-roaming cats to trap/neuter/return. Some humane societies and shelters loan these traps out as well.
Besides spaying and neutering, if you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to a cat or dog, please visit your local shelter and save a life by adopting a pet.
