I think every community should have something like this, as there are plenty of people who can't afford to have this important procedure done.

Kudos to these humane and selfless people who are making a difference one animal at a time. Unfortunately, for every one person who does something positive for the animals, there seem to be 1000 more doing something negative. I wish the odds could be reversed.

that's great of them to help out and hopefully they can get back to do more. w/millions of animals who aren't spayed/neutered, 364 makes only a marginal difference. our local clinic sometimes receives grants so they can focus on the most over-populated stray areas {cats, i mean}. last year they had a quota of 1,400. this year it's about the same, but in a more selective area. w/about a million strays on our streets, it hardly makes a dent, unfortunately. but it does help increase awareness so long term perhaps we'll see a bigger change.

This story is just heartbreaking. I am so glad someone is trying to help these animals. It should never cost $200.00 to spay or neuter a pet.There is such a need in this world to help animals everywhere.

A much better solution to overpopulation than just rescuing a handful and leaving the rest behind. It's nice to read about a solution instead of just the problem.

I would take the strays I could to the humane sociey or home with me if I drove. My step sister found a baby chipmunk on the ground in the camp grounds one time and she was stupid she picked it up and tried to keep it she had no idea what she was doing plus she was sleeping in a tent with her jack russel terrier. He wanted that little rodent for lunch. If I were her I would have just left it there were I found it and found one of the park rangers to call animal control cause they would know what to do with it. She did put it back and later that day I saw two boys holding it and their dad was with them and he was saying he would know how to take care of it to his boys cause he was a wildlife vetranairian that specialized in rodents such as chipmunks and squrriels. This made me feel so much better even though it's mother never came back for it.

I say electracute the people who want to do this to animals and see how they like it. I mean really they haven't seen what type of damage shock collars and the electric chair can do. Remember the guy who thought it would be funny to use a shock collar on his kids for a punishment.
