To date, 10 dogs have been spayed or neutered through Animal Aid USA donations, which according to PETA could help limit animal overpopulation by as many as 670,000
New York (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Royal Pet Club, through its partnership with Animal Aid USA, has added a new page to its website highlighting the first 10 dogs to receive low cost or free spay and neutering services through the alliance’s programs. Royal Pet Club donates five percent of its profits, plus $2 for every new Royal Pet Club customer, to support its free and low-cost spay and neuter program through Animal Aid USA’s veterinary partners across the United States.
According to PETA, by spaying or neutering just 10 dogs can limit animal overpopulation by as many as 670,000 births in only six years. This number is especially significant considering that approximately five million to seven million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately three million to four million are euthanized (60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats), according to the ASPCA.
Since partnering with Animal Aid USA earlier this year, Royal Pet Club Founder and President Prince Lorenzo Borghese has made it his mission to educate and provide funding to support low-cost and free spay and neutering programs to low-income pet owners who cannot afford to have their pets sterilized, which Borghese believes is one of the best ways to limit pet overpopulation.
“If people would spay and neuter their pets, this could be a no-kill country, and there would be no need to euthanize a dog because of over-population,” Borghese says. “To euthanize man’s best friend in order to control the pet population is simply barbaric and must be stopped.
“It’s essential that dogs be spayed and neutered in order to stop this terrible cycle that has caused so much suffering in the country’s dog population, and Royal Pet Club and Animal Aid USA want to lead the way.”
