February is spay and neuter month in the United States. One way to save animals and help in this killing of healthy animals is to adopt one from your local shelter. Make sure you do your homework so you bring the right pet into your home. It will mean their life saved if you and that pet are a good match.
Anytime someone acquires a pet from the neighbor or anywhere else, make sure you do what is right. Spay or neuter that animal so they do not produce unwanted offspring that will be dead later. So often people wait too late to spay and neuter and the litter is too much to feed and find homes for too. The result is death to many of these healthy animals.
You would be surprised how many people do not spay and neuter their pets because of cost of that procedure. If you can afford to help someone, go visit them and tell them you will pay for spaying or neutering of their pet when it gets old enough. Make sure you take the person and give the money to the spay/neuter clinic and not just give the dollars to that person unless you know they will spend it on spaying/neutering.
Shelters have fund raisers, thrift shops or numerous other ways to volunteer for no cost.These times can be found out by contacting the local shelter and finding out how you can run off flyers advertising the fund raisers and other helpful gestures. There is something for everyone to help volunteer to save animal's lives.
If you can find it in your heart to foster a mama dog and her pups, you can save lives of all these precious animals. Cats need some care too, so if you are a cat lover, there is your way to save lives too. Fostering is not at any cost to the foster people. Ask about your way to help at your local shelter by being a foster person.
