You may have seen our canisters in your neighborhood, in some of your favorite stores. Call Diane (215) 794-7425 to sign up to collect change.
Speak Up about Spay and Neuter:
Pet over-population is wide spread community issue. No one person is the sole cause but many people can be part of the solution. Ask people to please spay and neuter their pets, cats especially. Every summer, shelters across the USA see an influx of kittens that compete with adult cats for homes. Every un-altered pet can contribute as many as 10-15 offspring yearly to the pet overpopulation problem. Prevention is worth a pound of cure. Help raise money to help a friend or neighbor get their pet spayed or neutered. Download this educational flyer about the Benefits of Spaying and Neutering. Call Friends of Animals 1-800-321-7387 for a low cost spay/neuter certificate.
