AND...We will also help feral
These are animals that fend for themselves in
barns or sheds on someone's property. If the
owners will step up and take responsibility to
provide food for these animals and keep these
feral cat colonies together, we will make sure
their numbers do not get out of hand. Barn Cats
(ferals) offer great rewards in exchange for food
and a dry place to sleep. Being natural born
predators, they will keep barns rodent free and
cut down on wasted grain and other rodent
destruction, a win-win situation for all!! If you
need advise about a feral cat colony, please call
Betty or Patricia..
The key to the problem of abandoned animals, unwanted litters of helpless
babies, homeless feral cats and over crowded kill-shelters is something we
should all try to find....We have started an organization to be part of the
solution. We are a Georgia Non-Profit Corporation and a Federal tax exempt
501 (c) 3. We applied for our tax exempt status ten months ago and now
have our official recognition letter! We are located in the small rural farming
community of Girard Georgia. We are committed to stopping so many
un-wanted litters and getting our "out-of-control" animal population under
control.. Our Board of Directors are animal lovers from our community and
from Martinez & North Augusta! If you care about our cause, helping
helpless animals, please help us out with a tax deductible monetary
donation by donating through PayPal, or directly to Luv 4 Paws Fund via
mail....Click Here for our mailing address.
Until one has loved an
animal, a part of one's
soul remains unawakened.

In six years one unspayed female dog, her offspring and their puppies, if none get spayed or
neutered, can produce up to 67,000 dogs. In the same six years one unspayed female cat, her
kittens and their kittens can add up to 73,000 cats. There will never be enough good homes for
all of these unwanted pets. Humane shelters will continue to euthanize millions of healthy cats
and dogs each year for no reason other than homes cannot be found for them. The most
effective solution to help solve the unwanted pet euthanasia dilemma is pet sterilization at the
time of shelter adoption (or anytime you acquire a pet) including early age spaying and
neutering. The term early (or juvenile) neutering refers to the surgical altering of a pet's
reproductive organs at 6 weeks of age or older. Our Veterinarian, recommends the procedure
at age 3 months & at least 3 pounds.
Changing Views on Early Spay/Neutering
By performing early neutering at the time of adoption, the new owner and the humane shelter
have both done their part to ensure that a pet's offspring will not be back at that same shelter
in 6 months! Many progressive shelters now endorse this policy. In 1991, after careful
evaluation of scientific data, the American Humane Association became the first national
organization to endorse early spaying and neutering of puppies and kittens. The American
Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association quickly
followed suit and believe the practice to be a safe, effective tool to help end pet
With the advancement of medical knowledge over the past 10 years, informed veterinarians
have changed their views on the appropriate age for pet spaying and neutering. Doctors at
large and prestigious veterinary hospitals and humane shelters such as Boston's Angell
Memorial Animal Hospital, and the Los Angeles SPCA, the Miami Humane Society, and the
Harrison Memorial Animal Hospital of Denver have performed thousands of early spay/neuter
surgeries with excellent results.
Our Vet, Dr. Pat Dyar considers spay/neuter as early as 12 weeks.
If you already have an unaltered pet, even if the animal is no longer a youngster, the pet will
benefit greatly by the spay/neuter operation and you will be helping keep unwanted and
unloved pets from being abandoned to their on devices for survival...
