The Issue: Dog Euthanasia at Shelters
Many homeless and abandoned dogs live in shelters that cannot afford to treat and house them indefinitely. The result of this lack of resources is often euthanasia. Vaccinating and sterilizing dogs helps prevent diseases and prepares them to find adoptive homes.
The Campaign: Spaying or Neutering and Vaccinating Dogs
If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then Lil Paw Prints Animal Rescue Haven can spay or neuter and vaccinate five rescued dogs. Each additional $80 raised will fund sterilization and vaccination for another dog. Spaying or neutering and vaccinating dogs reduces acts of aggression, prevents the spread of contagious diseases such as rabies and hepatitis, and limits the growth of homeless dog colonies.
Lil Paw Prints Animal Rescue Haven
Lil Paw Prints Animal Rescue Haven rescues and provides sanctuary for homeless and abandoned dogs. Lil Paw Prints’ pets receive basic medical care including vaccinations, heartworm checks, and spay or neuter treatments. Then they live in foster homes with caring volunteers, where they undergo evaluation for temperament and personality and learn basic commands. The organization carries out all of these procedures with the end goal of placing the animals in loving adoptive homes.
