Kingman Letter: Live release and spay/neuter

The Western Arizona Humane Society runs our animal control through the Kingman shelter.

One of the good things they were doing was posting the animal census for each quarter, and we the animal saviors have been seeing a steady increase of the "live release rate" since they've posted them on their website.

Unfortunately, they dropped the ball and haven't posted the fourth quarter.

These live release rates motivate the animal folks who devote their time and money to a spay/neuter mission to continue the increase. If I were to request it from WAHS, they would know it benefited the animals and would definitely stop posting any numbers.

It wouldn't benefit the people running WAHS if they are handling fewer animals. The county might reduce the dollars they get.

The Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic did over 3,500 spay and neuters last year (2012) and they single-handedly will solve the overpopulation of animals because of numbers like that. Where's our spay/neuter program funded by Mohave County? It would benefit them in the long run?

Thanks for your attention. Please help the animals.

Jerry Burch, Kingman

I just went thru a Spay Neuter "SNIP" program. Cost $65.00. But what a surprise it ended up costing me another $130.00...

I have used the "SNIP" program many times and never had a penny charged extra...What has happened....???????????

It seems the manager has been to busy to call me...

Thanks to all the other animal Hospitals in Kingman who ALSO spayed and neutered pets in 2012. Low Cost did a lot that is for sure, but not single handed. I know the other vets in town did their part as well. At least they did all that were sent to them by Animal Control. They seem to prefer to send them to Low Cost mainly- not really spreading them out.
But anyway Thank You to ALL KINGMAN animal hospitals that helped with the overpopulation past, present and future!

It seems that WAHS is way to busy spending the money on suing individuals and organizations that are trying to help decrease the animal over population instead of doing it themselves with the money they are using for frivolous lawsuits and criminal charges.
They should be helping these organizations instead of putting them through hell and trying to ruin their reputations.
For some reason, WAHS has a vendetta against these people that they are never going to win in a court of law but will continue to use our money to do this whether we like it or not.
It's a sad situation when they are more concerned about "getting even" for whatever reason they may have than to shake hands and come together to figure out a way to help these animals.
It turns my stomach that they have the nerve to call what they are doing "professionalism"!
