Peg Schaeffer follows up on great results at Chamber meeting
Fund set up for spay/neuter program at First & Farmers National Bank. Half-price spay neuter program will be at Day & Day Feed & Pet. Click on headline for full details
By Peg Schaeffer
I spoke at the Columbia/Adair County Chamber of Commerce meeting yesterday, Tuesday, 10 Feb 2015, about the need for low cost spay/neuter in the area. This is part of my speech:
Did you know? One female dog can produce 2 litters of 6-10 puppies per year. This means 1 unspayed female and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in 6 years. An estimated 80% of these dogs will be euthanized in shelters. Why spay? Do you know 67,000 people who want a new dog? A female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years.My talk seemed to open a lot of peoples' eyes.
After the meeting several members came to me saying they never realized the numbers were so high. They also agreed with me that we need to do something about it.
As a result an account has been opened at the First & Farmers National Bank, 224 S. Public Square in Columbia, KY. The name of the account is the Adair Co. Spay/Neuter Fund. Businesses and individuals who want to help make it affordable for low income residents to spay or neuter their pets are encouraged to donate to this worthwhile cause. Ann Martin, the president of First & Farmers National Bank made the first donation. Who will be next?
I will be selling spay/neuter certificates for one half price at Day & Day Feed, 1011 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, on Saturday, February 21, 2015, 10am-2pmCT. The cost for a dog will be $25 and for a cat $20. There will be a limited amount of certificates available. (This number depends on the amount of donations the spay/neuter fund receives). I will also microchip dogs that day for $20. For more information people can contact me at 270-378-4521.
