Friends! We’re so excited to announce we’ve won a grant to support our Voucher Program for Community Pet Sterilization!
As you know, Holbrook — a town of 5,000 — takes in over 550 dogs and cats at our shelter each year. That’s 1 shelter animal for every 10 people living here! While we’re able to save over 90% of the animals who come to us at the shelter, our capacity is routinely overwhelmed by litters of discarded cats and dogs. Overpopulation is a very tragic and very avoidable circumstance:
In 3 years, and as early as 4 months old, 1 spayed female and 1 unneutered male can produce 512 dogs or 382 cats.
