We're Driven By These Facts
There are approximately 40,000 unaltered cats & dogs in Marion County

An unaltered female dog can produce an average of 16 puppies a year. An unaltered female cat can produce an average of 15 kittens per year.

It was under that name that she held the title as one of our longest residents at VOCAL- about 2 years she had spent waiting for an adopter. Unfortunately, that adoption fell through recently after her adopter suffered some life-altering and unexpected health... Keep Reading
