Spay/Neuter: Don’t Litter

Rocco’s Pack is participating in this year’s Great Grove Bed Race.  This is a community event, and because one of our guiding principles is connecting with and educating our local community, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be there and send a message!  A very important message that is near and dear to us…the Spay/Neuter message.

You might be asking, “what exactly will happen?”  On September 2, 2012, Rocco’s Pack and the “Spay/Neuter Pack” team will race down a 1/8 of a mile strip in the beautiful Coconut Grove while pushing our bed which will be fully decorated with the Spay/Neuter theme.  Our runners will be in Spay/Neuter attire and EVERYTHING about us will emphasize the importance of Spaying and Neutering.

Now you’re probably asking, “how important is spaying and neutering?”  In 2010 there were 35,924 dogs and cats taken in to our county shelter.  Fifty-six percent, 20,112 of those were euthanized.  In 2011, this number was lower, but we still need work.

Don’t Litter: You can help us make a difference by making a donation that will go toward funding a mobile spay/neuter clinic.  Funding this initiative will offer 2 days of low cost spay/neuter services to members of our community that may not otherwise have the means to spay or neuter their pets at the regular price.  Make your donation securely via PayPal using the link below.

Your support matters and every little bit helps!  Save lives by preventing births!
