Plethora of Puppies

by Animal Rescue Fund of MS

Summary

ARF has a plethora of puppies. As a matter of fact, ARF always has a plethroa of puppies. ARF wishes to educate the community on the benefits of spay/neuter programs and to assist people in spaying and neutering their pets. In the mean time, we need to be able to give the puppies the specific care that they need in order for them to grow up into healthy dogs that can be adopted as great family pets.

Challenge

People do not spay and neuter their pets! The puppy population is preposterous! ARF would like to combine education with spay/neuter assistance to the community. ARF would like to have a safe, healthy environment to house unwanted and abandoned puppies until they are ready for adoption. The new ARF facility has room for a formal puppy room and a play yard. These "extras" would be fabulous!

Solution

We get many calls from people to take puppies who say they just couldn't afford to have their dog/cat spayed. ARF would like to be able to assist by paying all or part of the spay. When puppies do arrive at the shelter and are going through their immunization stage, having an area separate from the rest of the facility would be good for the puppy's health and well being. When local schools come to volunteer, kids help care for the puppies and in turn learn about the problem and what they can do.

Long-Term Impact

For every dog ARF helps to spay or neuter, that results in less litters being born and less abandoned puppies. If we continue to educate the public and especially the students from the schools that we work with, there will not only be a decrease in the number of strays but a young, educated community with the tools to help alleviate this problem.
