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.

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 $100,000. 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.

CAR SAFETY FOR PETS
Now that temperatures are rising above 70 degrees on many days please pay attention and do not ever leave your dog in the car. It takes only minutes for the temperature to rise above 100. Even with windows partially rolled down it is not safe and you can be charged with cruelty.
WE NEED CRATES DONATED OR LOANED FOR OUR MOBILE SPAY NEUTER EVENTS. PLEASE CALL MAJIE POWEY IF WE CAN BORROW A CRATE FOR THE UPCOMING CLINICS.
