Cause for Paws Friday

Published 9:56 am Thursday, March 23, 2017

The 21st Annual Cause for Paws will support the Humane Society of Davie County’s Spay/Neuter fund.

Spay and neutering dogs and cats is the best way to conquer unnecessary euthanasia in county shelters.

How does HSDC use the spay/neuter fund?

• Fixing community stray cats. Overpopulation of cats is a big issue in Davie County. With the help of volunteers, HSDC is targeting areas with community cat colonies. Volunteers trap those cats, send them on spay/neuter transport, and release the cats back to their homes. This process lowers cat intake at Davie County Animal Services.

• Helping the community. The fund sponsors community members who don’t make the cut for government assistance and still find the clinic prices to be challenging.

• Special pricing. HSDC has a goal to offer special clinic pricing for at-risk breeds that have higher euthanasia rates in county shelters.

By supporting Cause for Paws, you are supporting these efforts that will lead to No-Kill Davie.
