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!

Gearing up for March 2011 Campaign

Lydia (pictured left) is one of the the summer of 2010's mama dogs.  She arrived at the shelter pregnant, gave birth to her puppies in August, and now (more than three months later) is still waiting to be adopted.  Let's try to prevent a replay of this sad and completely avoidable situation next year!

Even though spring seems far away, it's time to start planning the March 2011 "Prevent a Litter" Campaign.  Last year we gave away $3000 worth of coupons to spay/neuter sixty animals.  In 2011 our goal will be to raise and then give away $5000 worth of coupons to help spay/neuter one hundred animals.

We are applying for grants from ASPCA, Best Friends Grassroots Grants, and PetSmart Charities, but will also need donations from concerned local citizens in order to achieve our goal.  Please consider making a special end-of-year gift to the Adair County Humane Society's "Prevent a Litter" Campaign.

Adair County Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization: your donations are tax-deductible.  You can drop off your donation at the shelter (Hwy. 6 W) or send by mail to P.O. Box 481, Kirksville, MO 63501.
Thank you!
