Stephanie Kellerman is a 14 year old girl scout working on her Silver award, and part of her project is to create awareness for the need of spaying and neutering pet animals, as well as feral cats and stray dogs to offer some relief to the problem of runaway animal breeding/over-population and to make the animals more attractive for adoption. This video is a part of her overall project.
The Rhode Island Spay Neuter clinic is a non-profit organization that is committed to offering a non-lethal solution to the problem of an overburdened shelter system and to end the need to euthanize healthy, adoptable dogs and cats by reducing the number of dogs and cats that enter the State’s shelters. By spaying or neutering the animals instead of euthanasia the animal population is brought down by attrition allowing the patient animals to live out their lives naturally.
It will also give some of the strays animals their one chance at having quality care to make sure they are healthy and safe for the community they live in. Cats and dogs are thoroughly examined for worms and other maladies and they offer subsidized rabies and distemper vaccinations.
They have graciously allowed Stephanie, (a budding videographer ), to follow their staff and document the process. The hope is that this video and the community outreach that is also a part of this project will increase awareness of the need for such a program.
