Over 23000 cats and dogs are euthanized each year in St Louis alone.Â Our local rescue groups are doing a tremendous job in finding our abandoned and homeless pets new homes but what really needs to happen is to get more of our cats and dogs spayed and neutered to reduce the number ofÂ pets that are euthanized inÂ St Louis. Here are two groups in the region that are trying to make a difference.
OpSpot – Operation Stop Pet Overpopulation Today! has a mobile Spay & Neuter Waggin’ allowing them to go directly into the neighborhoods that would otherwise have minimal opportunities for low-cost spaying and neutering options.
The Carol House Quick Fix Clinic is a new facility opening up on June 11, 2012 at 1218 S. Jefferson (at the corner of Rutger & Jefferson in Lafayette Square). This will be the first nonprofit, low-cost, high-volume, spay/neuter and wellness clinic for the St. Louis Metropolitan region.
