CONTRA COSTA HUMANE SOCIETY
January 19, 2012

I volunteer in the Animeals program with the Contra Costa Humane Society. We go to the same sites as our local food bank. When people who qualify for food donations come to pick up their food, they can also pick up for food for their animals, which we provide through donations received by CCHS. To help cut down on pet overpopulation, we tie the ability to receive free food into proof that animals are spayed/nuetered. We provide financial assistance for those who agree to spay/nueter, but can't afford it. If people refuse to spay/nueter after the first few pet food pickups, they can no longer qualify for free food. We have seen 80% compliance in spay/neuter. People tell us they couldn't keep their pets without the food we provide. This is a great program and should be implemented in other communities.
