McKinleyville, CA—Spaying or neutering your pet is a simple way to help control pet overpopulation and save lives. According to the U.S. Humane Society about 2.4 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs are put down in U.S. shelters each year. To help stop overpopulation further consider adopting your next pet from an animal shelter, such as “no kill” Nor Cal Pet Rescue Center in McKinleyville.
Operating a pet rescue center requires constant vet visits which add up quickly. Take Rocco for example (pictured with Carlos Sanchez). Rocco’s ears and tail had been docked with scissors and he was suffering from infection when he was found at a homeless encampment behind Bayshore Mall. Alfalfa (pictured with Meredith Maier-Ripley) came to the center needing to be neutered. Just recently, 10 dogs came in at once when an owner was unable to care for them.
Understanding this need for funding, Six Rivers Brewery partnered with Nor Cal Pet Rescue Center in June for Beer for Balls. The month-long fundraiser for Nor Cal Pet’s Spay and Neuter Fund included a mountain bike raffle along with donating one dollar for each pint of Hammond Trail “Altered Ale” sold. Six Rivers Brewery raised $2,000 for the cause.
“We are extremely grateful for Six Rivers Brewery’s help with our Spay and Neuter Fund. We are having difficulty paying down our vet bill and without the generous support of people like this we would not be able to continue to help so many animals,” said Tim Shreeve, co-owner of Nor Cal Pet.
