Gov. Ivey joins Rep. Connie Rowe (R-Jasper) and Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) in recognizing World Spay Day on February 27th in Alabama
Gov. Kay Ivey signs HJR 152 in her state Capitol office in Montgomery, Ala., with primary resolution sponsor Rep. Connie Rowe (R-Jasper) recognizing February 27, 2018 as World Spay Day in Alabama. World Spay Day advocates the importance of spaying and neutering cats and dogs.
As stated in the resolution, Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) recognizes:
• pets provide companionship to 65 percent of U.S. households;
• 2.4 million healthy and adoptable cats and dogs are put down in animal shelters each year due to lack of critical resources and public awareness; and
• nearly 90 percent of pets are living in poverty, and 98 percent of community feral and stray cats are unaltered; and spaying and neutering has been shown to dramatically reduce the number of animals who are put down in animal shelters.
Orange Beach Animal Care and Control is a resource for animal advocates and volunteers driving change and accelerating protection for animals in Orange Beach, Ala. For more information about OBACCP, please visit us on the web, Facebook or Instagram.
