Adopting from the county shelter or from the Friends is cost effective! While you will pay a fee, your pet is already spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. These can be expensive services from the veterinarian. Think twice before someone offers you a kitten or pup from a litter. Think of your pocketbook and all of the animals euthanized across this country because people neglect to spay/neuter. Help control and reduce the number of homeless companion animals by adopting only from municipal and non-profits that spay/neuter.
