WHY OUR WORK MATTERS
According to study by the ASPCA Professional published in PLOS ONE 2014, 70% of the animal population needs to be sterilized at all times to actually be able to see a decrease in population. This means you can alter 15-20% of animals every 6 months if no new animals enter your population. But in reality, nearly all populations of dogs and cats have a few new animals that come in. Native American communities, in particular, have a higher amount of animal dumped or abandoned due to the rural demographics.
