“If we are serious about reducing abandonment and euthanasia of cats and dogs, then we must address their overpopulation by spaying and neutering,” said Gerard Kolb, a Cazenovia resident, veterinarian and Wanderers’ Rest board member. “Unplanned pregnancies are much too common. Sickness, starvation, predation, vehicular trauma and other unkind destinies await many offspring born of animals that should have been altered before reproducing.”

“Wanderers’ Rest celebrates every homeless cat and dog that is given a second chance with a new loving family and home,” said Glenn Ivers, executive director of Wanderers’ Rest. “There are far more homeless animals than there are homes available. One of the most humane things that pet owners can do is to spay and neuter their cats and dogs. Kittens and puppies touch our hearts, but roughly half face a very uncertain future that can break our hearts.”

Contact Wanderers’ Rest at 697-2796 or email humanemanager@wanderersrest.org for more information or to apply for assistance.
