February Special Spay/Neuter 
Treat your pet to a happier, healthier, and longer life! 
Major health benefits 
Did you know that spaying/neutering can benefit a pet's health by decreasing the chance of testicular, mammary, and ovarian cancers? Hormone-driven behaviors such as urine marking and roaming can also often be modified with this surgery.   
Too many pets, too few homes  
Several million animals enter shelters nationwide every year. Many never find loving homes.

RStubbs with his familyeunited after 6 years
It's as small as a grain of rice, but it helped Stubbs find his family after 6 long years! Stubbs has a microchip.
In mid-January, the sweet Boston Terrier was brought to the Shelter after being found without a collar and tags. This was 6 years after he was reported missing under suspicious circumstances. His family filed a police report and notified the microchip company in 2006. They never imagined they would see Stubbs again.
After a simple scan, his microchip traced back to his adoring family. The dog was overjoyed to see them again and hear his favorite phrase: Wanna go for a car ride, Stubbs?
   "A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles."

With help from many friends, Journey's long road led to an accepting family with patience to spare. Learn how this unique dog provides comfort when needed most.
Last month, 400 pets in our care found forever homes - that's 115 more than January 2012! Also, 102 lost pets (including Stubbs, mentioned above) have been reunited with their families! We appreciate your continued support as we help orphaned animals get the best chance at a better life.
