Dear Spay/Neuter advocates: At the 4/2/19 Jackson City Council meeting I spoke out AGAINST the Jackson Animal Care Center, which has now exceeded 1.5 million dollars in taxpayer money to construct and will cost at least 2-300,000 to operate per year. We in the spay/neuter community believe this is NOT a move in the right direction for animals and will do nothing to stop pet over-population. As well, the powers-that-be have written a spay/neuter ordinance that will penalize pet owners. The answer is not more buildings and criminalization, the answer is AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE SPAY/NEUTER. Please see my post with links to letters I have written to the Mayor and City Council members in the following blog posts.
