It is very important to get all dogs and cats spayed or neutered. Overpopulation is a major problem in the central valley and every year thousands of dogs and cats are euthanized because they are allowed to breed faster than homes can be found for them. If such drastic measures were not taken, we would be overrun with strays, which would pose significant health concerns. There is, however, another way. If we spay and neuter our cats and dogs, we can reverse our overpopulation problem without euthanasia. With prices as low as $20 for cats, and $40 for dogs for Medi-Cal recipients at the HOPE Animal Foundation, there’s no reason not to.
Another very important part we can all play in halting overpopulation is supporting our local rescue organizations (Animal Compassion Team (A.C.T.), Animal Rescue of Fresno (A.R.F.), Bully Rescue), whether financially, by volunteering, or by adopting. Every Friday Saturday and Sunday we have Dogs and Cats from A.C.T. available for adoption. Click HERE for more information.
