Animal Alliance-South Cumberland<o :p></o>
Receives a Grant from the Petco Foundation
In an ongoing effort to help control overpopulation of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cat in our area, Animal Alliance is happy to have received a grant from the Petco Foundation in the amount of $2,500 to help low income pet owners spay and neuter their male cats and dogs. Low income pet owners can now get their male cats or dogs “fixed” for only $5 with proof of low income.<o :p></o>

With this “Neuter is Cuter” campaign, the volunteers at Animal Alliance are hoping to draw in more pet owners with male dogs and cats and have a larger impact on the area’s population of unwanted puppies and kittens, since these male dogs and cats have a consistent ability to breed, said Kathy Bouldin, president and volunteer. We want to help pet owners to become aware of the importance of neutering their male pets, not only for medical reasons, but also for behavior benefits. As Mrs. Bouldin reported, these surgeries will also help us continue to reduce the numbers of strays on our mountain.
Many pet owners have difficult seeing the connection between the numbers of strays and their unneutered male pets. They do not realize that an unneutered male can impregnate numerous females and therefore father hundred of offspring in their lifetime.
If you have or know anyone who has a male dog or cat who has not been “fixed”, please call us at 931-235-9006 and make an appointment for this $5 male pet special.
