PLEASE Spay Or Neuter Your Pets
I must say that I posted this on a comment to a previous story. However, I thought it might need to be posted as a story.
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the animal shelter (the POUND) puts over 13,000 dogs and cats down every year. I'm a fanatic about neutering and spaying. I use to think it was awful, especially for male dogs. Don't ask me why, I have no reason why I felt that way. But learning that one statistic has made me become a "pusher." A pusher who pushes spaying and neutering for our pets. People just think puppies and kittens are the cutest things. They get them from a backyard breeder, a pet store, their friend down the street, from reputable breeders and guess what happens? Those adorable kittens and adorable puppies become CATS and DOGS! They aren't cute any more. And they either get relegated to the backyard or worse short-chained to a doghouse. Or they may even go ahead and take them to the pound. There are more unwanted animals than there are those of us who want them.
This is my sad story and what makes my heart bleed.
