I just thought I would post the URL for an article that appeared in
the local paper about a gal who works at our local pet supply store
"that made it her mission to find homes for abandoned, abused and
neglected cats and kittens. Her efforts have paid off for 1,359 lucky
felines so far". This is a quote from the article.

This is a great person with a heart as big as can be. Not only does
she find homes for them but she has them all nuetered / spayed and
takes care of any illnesses they have paying for the expenses herself
plus she has MS herself which you would not know talking to her. She
is a great all around person.

There is a spot to post a comment at the bottom of the article.

There would be a lot less abandoned and abused pets if everyone forced their
states to enforce the laws. One law that should be passed is the
requirement that everyone other than professional breeders have their pets
spayed and neutered. But then would that prohibit the poor from even
finding an affordable cat or dog?


All that would do is force people to
become "professional breeders".

In reality there is no solution. People
like kittens, puppies, chicks and
goslings and they are often as ill
prepared to take care of them past that
stage as they are to take care of their
own children

Many shelters and vets do neutering very cheaply, sometimes for free,
at least for certain periods of time. I remember getting Roxy spayed
during a spay-neuter drive in my local area, where you could pay $20
to a participating vet and get your pet spayed/neutered. The normal
fee at my particular vet was $140. That amount especially galled me
because I had the option of bringing her back to the shelter to have
her spayed for free (she had a cold the day I adopted her, so they
gave me a voucher to come back when she was better), but the shelter
was 50 miles away and I didn't want to subject her to such a long car
drive.

Anyway, long story short, there are ways to get around the high fees
for spaying and neutering. Anyway, if the government were enacting a
law that all pets had to be neutered, then they had better make
provisions so that everyone can comply!

She is a true, selfless HERO, in my book! Bless her, for all of her
hard work.

will only be so many, and then there will never, ever, be any more.
