help their pets
We want to remind everyone that there are no appointments available at local veterinarians for spaying or neutering. We apologize, but this situation is beyond our control. Help for Animals Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic in Barboursville (near the Huntington Mall) is an option for those who can't afford to pay full price. Their numbers are 304-736-8555 or 800-953-7297. You can also contact them through their website, helpforanimals.net, to view their fees and to schedule an appointment. A SNAP volunteer, on occasion, transports cats to Help for Animals. If you are interested, you can call Chris Cozza at 740-441-1647 for additional information.
New Debit Card to Benefit SNAP
Pet overpopulation, high rates of euthanasia, health issues, behavior difficulties - just some of the problems tackled by spaying and neutering. We want to help if we can.
Did you know that kittens in the same litter can have different fathers? It's true. This is because a female cat releases multiple eggs over the course of a few days when she is in heat and can mate with several different toms. So, please, have your male cat neutered as well as your female cat.
Never Give Animals as Gifts
As enticing as it might seem to picture a loved one holding a puppy or kitten on a birthday or holiday, resist the urge. Surprise pets are the worst, but even if the person wants a pet, it's much better to visit a shelter together, and let them pick out the animal.
Baby Season is Still Here
Now that summer has arrived, the animals (pets and wildlife alike) still have one thing on their minds: Mating. If you haven't had your pets spayed/ neutered, please do it now. And, keep them indoors. They are safer and healthier when near you.
Here are three easy ways to help the animals:
Make a secure donation to SNAP using your PayPal account, or a credit card.
Shop at Amazon using the Smile program, and SNAP receives a percentage of your purchase total.
