Pals rescues 12,000 pets in 11 years

Mary Helen Wilborn-Rouse of Pals for Paws sends this Cheer:

“Pals for Paws would like to thank the citizens of Kokomo for their participation in our animal rescue efforts! With our spay/neuter grant money, we have been able to assist the public in spaying and neutering 2,728 pets over the past two years! When you consider that an unspayed pet, its mate and all of their offspring can each produce approximately 12 new animals annually, it equals a lot of lives saved thanks to compassionate citizens like you who wish to help decrease our area’s overpopulation crisis!

“Through adoption and private donations, Pals for Paws has been able to rescue more than 12,000 animals since 2002! We are truly grateful to all of the families who open their homes to our rescued pets and give them the wonderful life they truly deserve! Every animal we are able to adopt out makes room for one more to be saved. Thank you for choosing adoption! This year we have been able to rescue, pay for medical care, and adopt out rehabilitated animals with severe medical needs such as mange, broken legs, torn ACLs, severe dental and organ issues, and gunshot wounds. We could not help these animals without tips from concerned citizens and donations.
