Our HopesIn addition to promoting a better life for animals, we hope to REDUCE THE NUMBER OF UNWANTED ANIMALS that result from pets not being spayed or neutered.
Allowing animals to over-breed adds to the numbers that are brought to animal shelters for adoption, often exceeding their capacity.
Overpopulation breeds poor conditions for animals that become too many in one location. These animals can suffer poor nutrition, disease, the lack of adequate shelter, and they often become targets for abuse.
The programs aim is to SAVE LIVES by lowering the number of animals produced by irresponsible breeding. We know that we can't change the world, but we can change the quality of life for one animal at a time.
- To improve the WELFARE of animals whose owners have limited funds and resources.
- To assist in SPAYING/NEUTERING of these pets to prevent unwanted litters contributing to the problems of pet overpopulation.
- To EDUCATE people about the appropriate care of animals through proper nutrition, shelter and veterinary care.
- To EDUCATE people about the importance of spaying/neutering in population control because unwanted animals never receive adequate care.
Can we make a difference?
Sure we can! One animal at a time.
As the old man walked out on the beach at dawn, he noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish and flinging them back in the sea.
Finally catching up with the youth, he asked him why he was doing this. The answer was that the starfish would die if left in the morning sun. "But the beach goes on for miles and there are millions of starfish," countered the old man. "How can your efforts make a difference?"
The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and then threw it into the safety of the waves. "It makes a difference to this one." he said.
What is the Prairieland Anti-Cruelty Spay/Neuter Program?
The Prairieland Anti-Cruelty Spay/Neuter Program is a nonprofit organization which was founded by Judy Warmbier, a humane activist, and Nicole Duffee, D.V.M., Ph.D., a veterinarian.
Seeing the results of animals overpopulation as a humane investigator for the past 34 years, Ms. Warbier has helped strays and unwanted animals with temporary housing and supportive care. Dr. Duffee has donated to this effort veterinary services for spays and neuters for the past 20 years. The shelter currently holds a monthly spay/neuter clinic for all the adopted animals and for any individual who needs help for their animal. Fees are based on the ability to pay.
