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.
Karter Neal with ASAVET Charities cancelled the Nov.2 clinic due to a serious accident and the loss of her mobile clinic. She is looking at possibly being on the road by May of 2018. There is a Go Fund Me Campaign to help raise money.
Amy Starr with Paws and Hooves our other mobile provider is trying to schedule a clinic in January. We realize that many of you are looking for Spay/Neuter services and CAAT is looking at other possible options to assist you. Stay Tuned
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.
