SpayToday, NeuterNow!, a local non-profit clinic in Lakewood, is attacking the issue of pet overpopulation by focusing on the root of the problem, there are too many animals having unwanted litters. Founded by Dr. Angelina Piccoli, SpayToday, Neuter Now! has performed 25,911 procedures, helping minimize the number of unwanted pregnancies in dogs, cats and rabbits throughout Denver-metro areas.
Spay Today will be part of the Saving Pets Challenge, a fundraising campaign launched by Michelson Found Animals beginning at 10:00 a.m. on September 29, 2014 and ending on October 30, 2014 at 11:59:59 a.m. This is a fundraising campaign for charities focused on reducing shelter euthanasia in our communities.
The team raising the most during the Challenge wins:
1st Place receives $50,000
2nd Place receives $20,000
3rd Place receives $10,000
There will also be weekly Bonus Challenges for charities to win up to another $20,000.
By donating now to this fundraiser helps SpayToday, Neuter Now! collect donations to provide subsidized surgeries for community cats and pets of families with financial hardships. The more money raised, the more unwanted litters can be prevented!
As little as $15 can give a pet a rabies or distemper vaccination, $40 will sterilize and vaccinate a community cat (these used to be called them feral but really many of them just don’t have a permanent address), and $75 stops a medium sized dog from “littering.” Won’t you help today?
Join the SpayToday team and collect at least $100 in donations and you will receive a commemorative T-shirt at the end of the challenge.
Severe overcrowding of shelters in the Denver-metro area due to unwanted litters results in euthanizing an estimated 40,000 cats, dogs, puppies, kittens and rabbits each year. Together we can prevent these deaths by no longer accepting that accidental, unwanted litters are just a part of life.
Pet sterilization is the best way to rewrite the story with a happy ending. SpayToday’s mission is to provide high quality, caring, compassionate and affordable sterilization options for cats, dogs and rabbits and to ensure that every family, rescue organization and shelter in our community has the ability to access these services.
Join the fight against pet overpopulation and shelter euthanasia, have your pets sterilized and donate to help others. Ensure that pets that have already been born get the chance to find their forever homes.
