we have a wonderful program in my town. They pay to get the animals out of the pound, and give you vouchers for part of the spay/neuter, and if you cant afford the rest, they get you a sponsor! The pet zoo store does so much sponsoring for animals. They just donate a ton of money/ goods, to the programs. Its so great. THere is a new grant too. the pound just got a huge amount of gov. money to help. And part of the program, compassion in action, is that no animals needing to be put down by 06. So they sponsor all the spay/neuter. and if you get your animal through them and take it to their vet, they knock MORE off the spay/neuter fees. in the end you can pay about 20 for it all. which is great. more then half off.
IF you choose to foster rather then adopt, they also buy you everything you need to do it. The litter and pan, food, toys ect. They say you provide the love we provide the rest. And then as a foster mom, i find them homes or take them to the adoption day, every sunday at the pet store.
A few years back we had an all time high of animals needing to be put down, which is why all thease programs were created.
Now where there are kittens in my area, everyone JUMPS on them, and they go like ice cream on a hot day. No one is left behind, and adoptive parents have to sign a contract stating that they will be spay/neutered by6 months or the program will re-claim the animal, and they wil get all their shots, and if you cant keep it, to return it to any CIA foster parent or program.
Its so nice knowing that they are doing all they can. and im helping with what i can.
