Since I was a young girl living on a farm, I’ve had a sweet spot for animals. My parents were very patient with me as our front porch was overwhelmed with stray cats and dogs I would adopt and I would try to find loving homes. So, it’s hard to imagine, in this day and age, how many cats and dogs are not spayed/neutered. The Humane Society estimated that 2.7 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs—about one every 11 seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Having your pet spayed/neutered is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them.
I’ll be working with Marci Bowling, who’s passionate about educating the public about pet adoption and finding foster pets forever homes.
