To the West Virginia legislature for enacting and Governor Tomblin for signing into law SB 202, the Spay/Neuter Assistance Fund bill.
With more cats and dogs being born in West Virginia than can be adopted, the West Virginia legislature has decided to do something about spay/neuter on a statewide scale. The Spay/Neuter Assistance bill will help fund these vital surgeries to reduce the number of unwanted companion animals entering shelters, being left to succumb in the wild, or abandoned on other people’s property.
West Virginia joins several other states in recognizing the need to help relieve shelters and animal control agencies in the state with the burden of housing unwanted puppies and kittens.
Take Action: West Virginia residents, thank your legislators and governor for helping reduce the number of unwanted companion animals in the state. Residents of other states, contact your legislators to see if such an assistance program is needed where you live.
