LITTLE PAW PREVENTION
Organized by: Bonnie French
There are many organizations that help animals in need. Providing them with food, shelter and medical attention when needed. Their main goal is to ensure the quality of life for these animals, and trying to keep them out of the shelters. In Corner Brook we have a major problem with over crowding in our shelters, mainly due to the inability to afford spaying\neutering for pets. I was one of thoes people. I have 2 female cats that have had many litters over the years while I desperately tried to come up with the money to get them fixed. While I enjoyed taking care of the kittens and finding them great homes I knew that this was not good for my cats. So I reached out to the animal organizations here in Corner Brook to ask for assistance in any way possible. I was met with disdain, and they refused. Then I was harassed by these organizations on Facebook every time I put kittens up for adoption. I was frustrated and didnt know what to do. I couldn't believe that there was no one that was willing help me. I started to become upset, and was made to feel like I wasnt worthy of owning any animals. When I realized that EVERYONE deserves to feel the love of an animal whether they are rich or poor. Owing a pet isn't for the elite, it's for anyone that has love to give to an animal, regardless of their financial situation. So I started fundraising and I put every bit of money I raised, and could afford, into an account at the vet clinic. While doing this I thought of all the other families that coulnt afford to get their pets fixed, or had no pets at all because they knew they couldn't afford to get them spayed or neutered. So I want to help these low income families by providing funding. Help them own a pet responsibly, while keeping cats and dogs out of our over crowed shelters.
Lets Prevent the problem, instead of just dealing with the problem of over crowed shelters.
Lets help low income families know the love that a pet can bring to your home.
Lets be part of the solution, instead of part of the problem!!!
