Spread the word about Spay/Neuter:

Help prevent the suffering of thousands of unwanted animals by spreading the word about spay/neuter. Shelters around the world are literally overflowing with homeless companion animals. More than 10 million adoptable companion animals are euthanized in shelters across the nation every year because of the pet-overpopulation crisis. Puppy mills (factory-like breeding facilities), “backyard” breeders, and accidental litters all contribute to this tragedy by bringing more animals into the world when there are not enough homes.

Altering (spaying and neutering) animals is the single most important step you can take to help combat animal overpopulation. Altering also provides health and behavioral benefits to animals!

On behalf of the Madison County Animal Shelter staff and all of the FUR babies here, we thank you in advance for thinking and caring about us with your donations. They are GREATLY appreciated!
