AAGS Featured in Eagle Newspapers

AAGS has been featured in the Eagle Newspapers this week! See the article here.


Too many animals for the available homes leads to an unacceptably high euthanasia rate in CNY! The rate of animals killed for lack of homes in Syracuse is higher than an other city in upstate NY.Image

AAGS has a solution! A high volume, high quality spay-neuter clinic for rescues, shelters, and the low income of Central New York could alter 30-40 animals per day with one vet. We already have several vets lined up and are willing to train more! We have been approved for this training by the premiere US trainer in these procedures, the Humane Alliance. We are looking for a location in Syracuse.

We have to raise $35,000 in “rainy day” funding before actually being scheduled for this training. That is to cover costs as the clinic “ramps up” to full capacity. For that we need your help!

Please visit our page on to donate. Every little bit helps, BUT if you are unable to contribute at this time, please pass our link on to others who may be able to help!

AAGS is thrilled to report that we have been accepted for training by the National Spay/Neuter Response Team at the Humane Alliance in NC, the preeminent training program in “High Volume, High Quality, Spay-Neuter.”

The acceptance letter reads in part, “The goal of the NSNRT is to end shelter pet overpopulation nationwide, and your participation is critical in implementing the solution.”

More than 44,000 dogs and cats live in Onondaga County households that exist below the poverty level and are unable to afford the cost of neutering surgery; consequently, the majority of these 44,000 pets are not neutered and pump out countless litters of unwanted puppies and kittens each year.

Given those statistics, it is not surprising that CNY has one of the highest euthanasia rates in New York State.

AAGS is committed to ending pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of healthy animals in the CNY area. This training will be a huge step in that direction!
