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!
