Why do we build shelters to take in the problem, when we should build to slow the problem down and reduce the need for shelters?
Seeing the big picture is important.
To equate the amount of money each shelter must spend when taking in dogs, is growing more expensive every year. And where does that money come from?
How about operating a low-cost/no-cost spay neuter clinic where the money comes from the business next door.
A little assistance will go a long way.
What if every cat in the Magic Valley of Idaho could be spayed or neutered at no cost.
APF Regional Proposal
Over the past decade, we’ve all watched this out-of-control issue with domestic animals, (over population, disease outbreak), multiply into a critical level. This is affecting not only the rescue organizations, and the few shelters we have in the region of the Magic Valley, but our city and county officials, our enforcement resources, businesses and residents throughout.
With the growth of residential housing and businesses coming into this area, I’m afraid the problem is going to continue to grow.
It’s time to bring forward the plan of a nonprofit, low-cost/no-cost spay, neuter clinic to slow this problem down. This will allow each city and county to provide the services to their residents, and ultimately shift the responsibility back to those creating the problem, the people!
We are currently working with a local veterinarian that will continue to learn more about the nonprofit structuring of this clinic through the Boise Idaho Humane Society. The clinic will be set up under the state guidelines and governed by board and committee.
We are looking to build in a central location with easy access for all counties within the Magic Valley, S. Central Region. (As close as possible to the I-84 and Hwy 93 corridor)
There are a few details that we are currently working on that will help determine the final build of this project.
Once land is acquired and all operation analysis is conducted, we will move forward. (Operational costs should not occur for any city or county)
The importance of this project is to completely cover every aspect of what’s needed. Building to take in the problem isn’t the answer, we must build to slow the problem to a point it becomes manageable for all.
Anythings Pawsable will design, raise funds, and build this center. No city or county will be obligated for building or the operations of this project.
