BENEFITING: HENDRICKS COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY ARK INC
Would you like to help decrease the euthanasia rate in shelters? Hendricks County Humane Society designates money each year to pay for free spay/neuter surgeries for pets of Hendricks County residents thereby reducing the number of unwanted litters. These funds are in addition to the money we pay to spay/neuter the dogs and cats in our adoption program.
By donating $30 for a cat or $50 for a dog you can be part of our effort to continue to decrease the euthansia rate. Thanks to public donations our Spay/Neuter program spent $4,500 so that 117 cats and dogs were sterilized in 2016.
We have continued this Spay/Neuter program in 2017 and have already committed $5,000 for 126 cats and dogs to be sterilized. But we need more funding to be able to continue this effort this year.
Did you know that spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates many bad behaviors such as spraying and marking, roaming to look for a mate and aggression (but still be protective). Also it can reduce risk of cancers and increase life span.
Just think, if we can reach and convince 250 of our friends to each donate $20, we will have $5,000 to spend in 2017 on more than 100 spays or neuters.
We are grateful to be part of the Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge 2017. Donations to this challenge go directly to Hendricks County Humane Society and will be designated solely for Spay/Neuter program for owned dogs and cats of Hendricks County.
Thank you for sharing. Thank you if you are also able to donate.
