While most people look forward to the warmer weather during the spring, many animal shelters become overloaded and stressed. Spring time is the busiest time of the year for humane societies because there is a greater influx of unwanted puppies and kittens. Help reduce the stress on shelters by getting your pet spayed or neutered. The surgery is quick and there are many clinics offering discounts during this time of year. This simple surgery can greatly reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Many shelters are forced to euthanize animals because they can simply not handle the numbers. You can also help by donating supplies to the local shelter. Reduce the costs of keeping unwanted pets.
If you are looking for a new pet, consider adopting. Spring is the perfect time to find your new family member. Stop by your local shelter and take someone home.
