Please Help  
I know I have a lot of pet lovers on my list. I am hoping all of you can help me out.

One of my partners is on the board of and spends countless hours volunteering for Spay Neuter Kansas City (SNKC). There currently is a contest for local charities to be the recipient of a festival's fundraising. Last year's recipient was awarded around $4,000.

SNKC provides free and low cost spaying and neutering in Kansas City to help control the pet population and hopefully lower the tragic number of animals that are euthanized in shelters every day. They also go out into the community and provide shelter, food, and water for animals that are kept in bad conditions (if they cannot convince the owner to give up the animal). My partner is the person who will stop on the side of the road and spend 2 hours trying to get a stray dog into her car.

While the animal shelter that is currently winning in votes is a great organization, they also raise tens of thousands of dollars each year and are very well established. SNKC is a new organization and the more pets that are spayed and neutered, fewer wind up in animal shelters.

The link to vote is here Click Here To Vote. If you could use your 3 votes for SNKC, I would really appreciate it. Also, please feel free to link to this post. Voting ends tomorrow (Aug 13) at 11:59 pm CST.

Some statistics on what SNKC can do with the money:

$4,000 would allow SNKC to provide: 200 cat surgeries OR 100 dog surgeries OR purchase 250 bags of 50 pound bags of food...

1 female cat spay can save 420,000 unwanted pets in 7 years!
1 female dog spay can save 67, 000 unwanted pets in 7 years!

In Kansas City, approximately 15,000 animals were euthanized last year just for being homeless.

Again, feel free to link to this post!
