Pups all in good care, thanks to article

Cheryl Wicks

Recently, you were kind enough to put an article in the Briefs section of The Union on the nine 7-month-old pups that we received at the Nevada County Animal Shelter on a very rainy day. Most of those pups are now in a permanent new home, and a few are staying in some great foster homes and will be finding permanent homes soon.

Placing all these dogs in a very short period of time is a miracle. I really want to thank The Union and the many wonderful people who responded and helped out. Nevada County definitely has some kind and big-hearted folks.

In addition, every one of these nine dogs will be spayed or neutered so that each of them does not produce a litter of nine.

When animals are not spayed and neutered, the number of animals grows in geometric proportions. This is not good for the animals or the people of Nevada County. I hope everyone will remember this story and help out by spaying and neutering their pets. If you need help doing this, call me, and the volunteers will help.

Secondarily, several other dogs got adopted as a result of the article and the efforts of many. Some people responded to the article and when they got to the shelter, decided on a different dog. This also delights us. The more animals that we can find homes for the happier we get.
