WHY SPAY AND NEUTER
The first step to decrease the euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals is to insure that companion animals are spayed and neutered. . One female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years, One female dog can produce 67,000 dogs in 6 years. It costs less to spay and neuter than to raise a litter.
WINTER CARE TIPS FOR PETS
All dogs need protection from cold weather and this means providing a warm dry shelter if they are spending time outside in the yard. A dog house insulated with straw facing out of the wind is critical for dogs that do not spend most of their time in your house. Dogs need extra calories if they are spending time in the cold weather. Cats that spend time outside also need a place to shelter and houses filled with straw work for them as well.
Sierra Animal Shelter is owned by Sierra Veterinary Services and funded by the local municipalities and Sierra County. The City of T or C has received a Capital Outlay Grant to begin funding a Municipal Animal Shelter. The projected timeline for the local shelter is two years. CAAT encourages adoption of shelter animals. CAAT helps by contacting pure-bred rescue organizations to foster pure-breds at the shelter as well as to list adoptable animals on Pet Finders. Last year more than 400 adoptable dogs and cats were euthanized at the shelter.
