~Save Lives-Adopt and Spay~
Help end homelessness!
More than 2,000 dogs and 3,500 cats are born every hour in the United States, adding to the existing population of 54 million dogs and 56 million cats. Each year, eleven million dogs and cats enter shelters because there are not nearly enough homes for them or they cannot be cared for properly.

Yes, it's so much fun to have baby kittens running around. It's also fun to see what kind of kittens your mama cat will produce. But it's just as much fun to adopt a homeless kitten and spay your mama cat ~ you will feel a lot better for it and help control the overpopulation problem.
I strongly believe that not spaying or neutering a pet, as well as not vaccinating, is a form of abuse. Up to 10 million healthy animals are killed in US pounds and shelters every year. That is nearly one million animals killed every month! This senseless killing could easily be prevented by spaying and neutering.
Visit the Friends of Animals or call the FoA Spay/Neuter Hotline, 1-800-321-PETS, and they will send you a list of participating veterinarians in your area -and an order form for your low cost spay/neuter certificate.
Here is another source for low cost spay and neuter services.
Why am I being put to sleep
When there is a promise I need to keep
Of playing, snuggling and giving joy
To a little girl or lonely boy.
God put me here to make them glad,
Did I do something wrong?
Was I bad?

The "Warm Fuzzies" pages of Furr Angels! is a wonderful place to visit if you want to read some lovely stories about rescued or adopted pets. Furr Angels! is doing great things in promoting funding for shelters and finding homes for animals. If you can't adopt any more pets, perhaps you would like to learn about the Furr Angels! sponsorship program and help a shelter pet to have a happy life.

Click the No Kill Shelter banner to search for a no-kill animal shelter in your state. I hope you're not as shocked as I was to find out how few there really are! In my state of Washington, there are only three listed.
It looks like I've got my work cut out for me - to either find some more or help to get more established.
American Partnership for Pets is more than thrilled to inform you that thanks to people like YOU, the Spay/Neuter stamps are sold outin central distribution.
This is an especially noteworthy event given the USPS's extraordinary print run of 250 MILLION stamps that were issued on September 20, 2002.
As you know, while it is very rare for the USPS to reprint a commemorative stamp, American Partnership for Pets believes that the spay/neuter stamps should be an exception!
American Partnership for Pets has already requested a reprint of these very popular stamps, and we will be shortly asking for YOUR assistance, such as letter writing, etc. to help us succeed in these efforts.
HOW YOU CAN HELP RIGHT NOW!
Please spread the word and encourage everyone interested in helping in the reprint campaign or learning more about the stamps and APP's work to visit the APP website frequently, and to subscribe to the American Partnership for Pets newsletter.
This wonderful cat, Oscar, was rescued by my sister. I can't stand to think what could have happened to him if she hadn't visited Partners 4 Pets when she did!
You can see more pictures of Oscar at Rescued

Did you know that less than 5% of lost cats brought to animal shelters are reunited with their owners? An ID collar tag with your phone number on it costs only $5.00 or so. Think what a difference that could make to you and your family!
