Spay and Neuter!

There are more than enough friendly, handsome, and cuddly dogs and cats waiting at shelters to be adopted.
Please don't buy animals from breeders and please don't let your animals reproduce!

Prevent a Litter Campaign: March 2010

The Adair County Humane Society of Kirksville, Missouri is proud to announce that our March 2010 “Be a PAL -- Prevent a Litter” campaign exceeded our expectations: 101 animals--59 dogs and 42 cats--were fixed as part of this campaign!

Sixty people received $50 coupons to offset the cost of the procedure.  Many more took advantage of special discounts from local veterinarians.  There were over one hundred entries for our prize drawing.  We commend community members for taking this essential step to end pet overpopulation.

We thank the ASPCA for a grant that funded thirty of our $50 certificates, as well as the many anonymous local donors who have asked us to put their money to work on spay/neuter efforts.

We thank Missy (shelter manager) and Shelly (adoption coordinator) for managing the extra phone calls and the influx of visitors at the humane shelter, as well as for their daily efforts (routine and extraordinary) on behalf of the homeless animals of our area.

We would like to thank the following veterinarians and their office staff for their generous efforts:

Dr. David H. Moore and Dr. John D. Moore
Adair County Veterinary Clinic of Kirksville

Dr. John S. Niebruegge and Dr. Lisa A. Doak
Kirksville Small Animal Hospital of Kirksville

Dr. Jenny Lindquist, Dr. Carla Miller, and Dr. Kristin Wrede
Lindquist Veterinary Care Center of Kirksville and Edina

Dr. Janice McHenry
KC Veterinary Services, Inc. of Edina

Dr. James Foster
Animal Health Center of Lancaster

We thank the media (KIRX, KTVO, and Kirksville Daily Express) for their positive coverage. 

And finally we thank area businesses for their support through donations for our prize drawing.
