Why we exist:
In every community, in every state there are homeless animals. Nationwide, more than 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters. These high numbers are the result of unplanned, unwanted litters that could have been prevented by spaying and neutering.
Locally, in 2010 nearly 19,000 unwanted animals were surrendered to Greenville County Animal Care Services. Sadly, over 7,600 of these animals were euthanized.
Many of these were healthy and adoptable dogs and cats that would have made wonderful companion animals, but the volume of surrendered animals far exceed the number of adoptive homes available.
Spay and neutering is the only 100% effective method of birth control. By spaying and neutering your pets and by supporting Speak for Animals you are part of the solution.
