It's like trying
to get upstream without a paddle... or any other
cliché you can think of
that expresses how it feels trying to save all the un-wanted animals on a
day to day basis.
Introducing the Jamie Slocum Adopt A Boxer Rescue Spay and Neuter Program
Each day about 70,000 puppies and kittens are born, as compared to
approximately 10,000 humans born each day. With birth rates of animals this
high, there will never be enough homes for these animals. The pet
overpopulation epidemic will not end until we can put an end to “puppy
mills”. Puppy mills are where all pet stores get their product… puppies.
They are mass produced in horrendous conditions, and given less care and
protection than most other products manufactured in the US. Puppy mills are
high volume commercial breeding kennels. Even when the voters have voted to
better regulate puppy mills, these regulations have been scaled back by
legislators, influenced more by money and lobbyists than by public demand.
Recent puppy mill legislation in Missouri and Pennsylvania has been
overturned or is in the process of being hacked back.
The animals killed in our shelters each day include puppies that never had a
chance. These unwanted animals are products of un-spayed and un-neutered
dogs. If you ever saw a litter of pups euthanized, you would know why
spaying and neutering your pet is so important. For every puppy that is
adopted into a family, an older dog will be euthanized because that spot has
Adopt A Boxer Rescue is looking to extend its current spay/neuter program to
those who cannot afford the full cost of spaying or neutering an existing
dog in their family. AABR currently spays or neuters each dog in foster,
before allowing adoption. Our new low-cost neuter program is in need of
funding. Donations to this program will be used to seek matching grants.
All donations will be used for the actual medical costs of spaying and
neutering. Please consider contributing to this program. Shelters and
rescues like ours are battling a never-ending tide of too many animals with not enough
families who will give them “forever” homes. AABR is trying to do
our part… Please join us in stemming this crisis.
