Letter: Spay and neuter

As it always happens the animals will suffer because of ignorance. What is it that you don’t understand about spay and neuter that protects the animal besides keeping the animal population down. It will prevent the animal from getting cancer and a number of other diseases.

Protect your animal, go to the Low Cost Spay and Neuter and get it done, even if you have to do without those packs of cigarettes or cases of beer.

You’ll survive and stop this onslaught of puppies filling the pounds.

If you’re looking for a new addition to the family go out to RUFFF and save a life.

I am always amazed at the number of people who think it is OK for their dogs to have a litter of six to ten puppies. They will often tell you, "I will find homes for all of them." Well, if you know that many people who are willing to adopt them, why would you not rather have them take unwanted puppies already in the shelter?? Helloooo

A little brash for some Marlene.Not for me I totally agree with you.We had a neighbor years ago that let his dog run around and mate and have litter after litter.Took them into town and have his kids give them (or try to) away in front of store.As a responsible pet owner and former animal control officer I was appalled.He said it made his dog a better dog after she had puppies and people got pretty puppies for their kids for free.As opposed to paying for one at the shelter.This was quite some time ago.Some people are inherently stupid.What I find stupid is the powers that be in Kingman not long ago rounded up feral cats at the courthouse.Trapped them,spayed and neutered them and returned them to the courthouse property for rodent control.I did not know the property was over run with rodents.My Mom lives out in Butler and is over run by cats.You have to rent a trap from the shelter-trap it and bring it to them! Does that make any sense to a thinking person??We gave her a beautiful bird bath (she's nearly blind)the cats killed all the birds.
