My pets are spayed and neutered … are yours?
In a three-week span, myself together with those who have the same admiration for animals, have recovered more than two dozen abandoned, parasite-infested, ailing, infant kittens and pregnant female cats.
With breeding season at a peak right now those numbers continue to ascend for us almost daily (one female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens in seven years).
Our shelters are full, our rescues are over-loaded, and too many faultless animals are suffering. Although I strongly feel that our parish needs a mandatory spay/neuter ordinance, I also strongly believe that change starts with just one.
Therefore, for the love of animals, I would like to take this time to selflessly plead that pet owners of our community assist us in trying to make this misfortune more pleasant by simply being responsible and taking advantage of the numerous low cost spay/neuter programs offered.
