I agree with the fact that people need to be aware of low cost spay neuter services as listed in the mentioned article. Our group which is in Patrick CO VA sees a lot of the same things mentioned by Jane Taylor in the article. It all boils down to people not accepting responsibility for their pets.

There is really no excuse for not having pets spayed and neutered. What's that? You say you can't afford it? Well my friend, I am here to tell you that you can. If a person smokes one pack of cigarettes a day that cost nearly $5.00, try putting some of that money toward the spay/neuter. In a little more than 2 weeks you would have enough to get a dog spayed/neutered at any of the low cost clinics offered in our area. I just give cigarettes as an example. You can give up some of your other unnecessary luxuries to save money for your pet to be altered.

Not only does spay/neuter prevent unwanted litters, it helps to make your pet happier and healthier. It reduces forms of mammary and testicular cancer and it reduces unwanted behavior such as marking,and coming in to heat. Let's face it without all those hormones surging through their body any animal is going to be happier!

Our group has helped many many pets that were here only because people did not accept responsibility. We have rehomed hundreds of animals. All which leave our rescue spayed/neutered. We provide all vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, and any other care they may need. At least 95% of our dogs/cats come from kill shelters in our area. We place at least 85% of those animals in homes in the northern states such as NJ,NY,CT,PA etc. We drive them there personally each month. We have done transports at least 1 time per month for the past 4 years. We fund our efforts out of our own pockets.

If you would like to see more about what we do to help the animals please see our web site at http://www.ourcritters.net !
