Movement coming to OKC to join people to help save pets | Families
A new movement is coming to Oklahoma City to help unite people in the hopes of saving the lives of pets.
The People Saving Pets social movement hopes to spread awareness about pet homelessness and euthanization to residents in our area. Oklahoma City is one of just two cities that have been chosen to launch the movement.
When searching for that perfect pet, it can sometimes be overwhelming to try and find the right shelter.
However, People Saving Pets has created an easy solution to help find that missing piece of your family. The website joins together animal shelters and charities in order to make it easier for residents to find a pet close by, by breed and age.
In addition to adoption, the site also provides information on spay and neutering programs along with a platform for people to connect.
Officials say nearly 8 million pets are left homeless, and nearly 4 million of those animals are killed every year because they were born without a place to call home. By simply spaying or neutering your pet when they are 8 to 10 weeks old, residents can help prevent an overpopulation problem that is currently hindering many shelters across the United States.
