Options available for spaying/neutering

I don’t understand how a family can have 60 animals, many of which are cats and dogs who are unspayed and unneutered. If you have that many animals, shouldn’t you be responsible for their welfare? I’ve read the articles about everyone’s explanation about how it happened, but it still doesn’t gel.

Surely, by now everyone in the county knows there’s a tremendous amount of financial assistance for spaying and neutering. We have been running ads in The Union and the Trader for many months about free spaying and neutering for cats and kittens, as well as providing spay/neuter help for dogs. And the Nevada County Animal Shelter has publicized their every other- month certificates for spay/neuter.

It’s so sad that now everyone except the Whittingslows has to scramble to try to find homes for these animals. What are they doing to help? We tried calling them to see what we could do to help them, but there’s never an answer.

Luckily, WAGS and Whiskers in Camptonville came by and PAL gave them about 400 pounds of cat food and they were headed to the shelter to pick up 20 of these cats. If anyone else wants to adopt any of them, we would be happy to pay for their spay/neuter and vaccinations. If you’re interested, call the Pet Adoption League at 273-7958.
