SPRINGFIELD ANIMAL ADVOCACY FOUNDATION
February 3, 2012

As the administrator of the Environmental Health section, which oversees animal control services for the city of Springfield, I have first hand knowledge of the work performed by our partner agency SAAF. We have worked together since the first day of their opening to promote responsible pet ownership by encouraging people to spay or neuter their pets. Animal control sees first hand what happens when pets are free to roam and breed. It is a constant struggle to find rescues to take our animals to be placed in new homes. This past year we were lucky enough to receive $35,000 from city council to pay for S/N surgeries for animals pulled from our shelter. The majority of the animals pulled have had their surgery performed at SAAF. With the reduced price for surgery, we are able to S/N more animals. To date we have had 460 dogs and 150 cats S/N and calculate that we have prevented over 2900 births in just the first year. This would not have been possible without Springfield Animal Advocacy Foundation spay and neuter clinic.
