spay and neuter

by Christina Morgan Cree

Have you ever seen a feral cat and noticed the tip of one of its ears is missing? That’s a good thing. It means someone has loved them by taking the time to humanely trap them and take them to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for parasites. Love for the unloved kitties is what Project Purr is all about.

According to Whitney Mayeda, Assistant Executive Director of H.O.P.E. in Fresno, 6,600,000 dogs received by shelters were killed last year on a nationwide basis. 8,400,000 cats taken in by shelters are killed on a nationwide basis. California spends over $250 million each year to house and care for over 1 million unwanted and abandoned pets, half of which are ultimately euthanized. In 2006, over 53,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens were euthanized in the Central Valley alone.
